Error when creating irregular channel cross section – Stations should be in ascending order.

Product(s): SewerGEMS, StormCAD, CivilStorm
Version(s): 08.11.XX.XX, 10.XX.XX.XX
Area: Layout and Data Input


The following error is displayed at the bottom of the irregular cross section dialog: Stations should be in ascending order


  • This error is seen when creating an irregular type section for a cross section, in the cross section editor.
  • It is seen particularly when you are defining two entries for elevation (relative) for a single station and the cross section editor reads a single elevation for a single station.

  • If you want to enter two elevations for a single station enter the first as 00+01 and the second as 00+01.01. This way the software will read the elevations correctly since they have slightly different stations.
