I am trying to use CHECKRAS v1.4 for the first time, but I am having trouble extracting the data from my HEC-RAS report.  I am following FEMA's CHECKRAS tutorial and I've deleted and regenerated the HEC-RAS report a few times over.  I keep getting an error message when I click the "Extract" button in CHECKRAS that reads "ERROR: getReportData()".  I am using HEC-RAS v3.1.3.  Is that the problem?


I found guidance addressing the error message I received in CHECK-RAS on the FEMA website: http://www.fema.gov/plan/prevent/fhm/frm_crgd.shtm.  However, I am still unable to make it work.  Maybe this website will be helpful to others.


Wish I would have read this sooner.  CheckRAS is a touchy program indeed.

The method mentioned on the website that you linked works best for me.  If I get that message, I rerun the report with a generic type so that I get the message in CheckRAS that the report is the wrong type and then the program opens HEC-RAS on its own with the correct table types already selected.  After running it this way the error normally goes away.

What you may have is a function turned on in HEC-RAS that Checkras is not capable of understanding.  It may also be that your tables are not in the correct order (HEC-2 style).

If all else fails, uninstall Checkras, reboot, reinstall, reboot, and start again.

You can send me your HEC-RAS file if you are still having problems, but seeing that the issue started 5 days ago maybe you have it figured out.  Either way I'd be happy to help.
