Queries can be saved to a file using the Write Query File option in the Query sub-menu of the Groundwater menu, and read back in using the Read Query File option. Queries are saved in a .PVF file, which stands for Points-Value File. A .PVF file contains:
The x-y coordinates of the vertices defining the query line(s).
The x-y coordinates of the generated query locations along the query line(s), and the data at these locations.
When you select Write Query File, you will first be prompted to select the material query line(s) that you wish to write to a file. Any number of queries can be saved in the same file.
Select the queries you want to save to a file. You can select individual queries with the left mouse button, or multiple queries with a window, or all queries (in the view) by using Select All in the right-click menu.
When you are finished selecting queries, press Enter, or right-click and select Write Selected from the popup menu.
You will then see a Save As dialog. A query is saved as a .PVF file (Points-Value File). The data saved in the file will be determined by the data you are viewing (i.e. Pressure Head, Total Head, etc).
The .PVF file is an ASCII file that can be viewed with a text editor. A .PVF file may not format correctly in a spreadsheet, as it was not designed for this purpose. If you wish to save queried data in a form that can be easily pasted into a spreadsheet, then use the Copy Data option, which is available as a right-click option only.
