HydroCAD® Stormwater Modeling - Since 1986
Exporting data from HydroCAD
HydroCAD 6.1 (and later) provides a wide range of new data export options, which can be broken into two general categories: (1) Exporting data for individual nodes, and (2) Exporting data for an entire project.
1) Exporting data for individual nodes
To export individual report elements, such as a summary or hydrograph, view the desired report and click the "Export" button. Depending on the type of report, you can then select the desired file format. With HydroCAD 7.1 and later, you can also right-click any report and select "Copy to Clipboard". (For further details, read about Windows Printing Tips.)
2) Exporting tabular watershed data
HydroCAD-10 provides the capability to export complete watershed (subcatchment) data in tabular (CSV) format. For details click the Help button on the Project|Export|Subcatchments screen. A corresponding watershed import capability is also available.
3) Exporting data for an entire project
To export data for an entire project, several options are provided on the new Settings|Export screen. The first group of selections are used to export hydrograph data in HCE format:
The second group is used to export data in tabular CSV format for use with a spreadsheet or database:
The selected items are automatically exported when the project is closed. The resulting data files are then available for use by other programs. For further details see "Export,Settings" in HydroCAD help.
4) Exporting data to an earlier version of HydroCAD
HydroCAD automatically saves each project using the earliest file format that is capable of containing the current project data. This eliminates the need for a separate "Save As" command when moving project files to an earlier version. If the earlier version is unable to read the file, HydroCAD will display the unsupported file elements. Details here.
