When looking at the total length of pipe in the Pressure Pipe Inventory report, the value is different than the total length in the flextables.

Problem ID#: 90942


First, the Pressure Pipe Inventory report will show the length of only the active pipes in the model. If there are any inactive pipes, they will not be included and may skew the results from the FlexTable.

If that is not the case, make sure that you are looking at the statistics of the calculated "Length" field, not "Length (Scaled)" or "Length (User-defined)". If you have a combination of scaled and user-defined lengths and look at only one of these columns, that will result in a different length as well. The "Length" calculated field will display the length of the pipe, whether it is scaled or user-defined.
