    I'd suggest doing the old fashioned way...by hand.
    It is not difficult, just a bit more time consuming. Then when you work out how to do it in Autoship...you can double check the results of the software.

    With all due respect but I do not think it necessary to "double check the results of the software." The software, I'm sure, will do well the calculations, there is no need to check it. The problem may be, in my opinion, Athvas does not know how to do hand calculations and therefore does not know how to ask the program to make them.
    Assuming Athvas know how to do that, what he needs is someone to tell him how to prepare the file for the program to work.
    If anyone knows, the time has come to help. Otherwise, it is better not tangle.
    I do not know Autoship and therefore I can not give the solution, sorry....

    There is ALWAYS a need to double check the software. One should never blindly accept computer program results without double checking them for verification and peace of mind that it works correctly. Otherwise its a simple case of GiGo...

    Of course, Ad Hoc, your words are very wise, guided by your experience of many years and many softwares. But my experience as a software developer is that most of the failures caused by the use of the programs in general is due to lack of user knowledge of both the theory and the program he is using.
    This is compounded by the inability to obtain, in many cases, the user read and understand the User's Guide

    Yes, the problem is the input run file in Autohydro. if anyone have calculated using autohydro can share it. Yes ofcourse it is good practice to compare the software results with manual calculation for our satisfaction.
