When clicking any node in the fire flow results browser all results (such as flextables) become "N/A".

Problem ID#: 49383, Internal Reference Number: 41905


This can be caused if the fire flow alternative has not been configured to save auxiliary results. Set the "fire flow auxiliary results type" to either "All Nodes" or "Failed Nodes" depending on what you need to review in your model. Then configure the other options if necessary. If you have a lot of nodes that you're running a fire flow for you may want to consider saving your output files to a different location than where you model files are saved because one output file will be generated for each node that you are processing in the fire flow.

Initially, you can restore the fire flow results browser by clicking the "Reset to standard steady state results" button or changing the active scenario and then changing it back to the scenario you're studying.

Note the fire flow results browser is only used to see results in other elements during individual fire flow runs. The fire flow flextable should be sufficient if you only need summary results for the fire flow run.
