Vertical Migration of SWMM 5 Calibration Files

Note: It is often important to compare the results for your link flows, node heads and system variables between SWMM 5 versions to help you calibrate the new version based on the old version results. If you run a SWMM 5 model in an older version, save the .rpt and .out file and then open up the SWMM 5 input file in a newer version of SWMM 5 you should see a active graph symbol. The active symbol means that you can plot the results of the old model in the newer SWMM 5 GUI.


For example, you can plot one of the system variables and then save ALL of the system variables to either a clipboard or a system calibration file. You can then use the Calibration dialog of SWMM 5 to compare the older results with the simulation results of a new version of SWMM 5.
