Problem

When trying to set the initial status of a valve through ModelBuilder, the following message occurs: "Unable to assign attribute "Status (Initial)" for element because enumeration value "open" is not valid."

Problem ID#: 90038

Solution

When mapping the status of a valve from the source to the WaterGEMS properties that there were two items available for the initial status "Status (Initial) (Label)" and "Status (Initial) (ID)". Make sure that you choose "Status (Initial) (Label)".

In addition, the value entered appears to be case sensitive. Make sure that "Open" and "Closed" both have the first letter capitalized.
