Reach Table Edit Command

The Reach Table Edit command allows the user to edit the reach parameters in one dialog box for common hydrology routing methods. When the user selects this command, a modeless dialog box will be displayed. This dialog box contains an editable data grid listing all the reaches in the current scenario. When the user selects a row in the data grid, the corresponding reach will be zoomed to the Map View (if not visible) and highlighted. In addition, the user can select a reach from the Map View, and the corresponding row in the data grid will be shown selected.

Follow the steps below to use the Reach Table Edit command:

  1. From the Input ribbon menu, click the Routing Reaches dropdown menu and then select the Reach Table Edit command.
