Where is this file coming from? What program creates it?

We do not currently have any options to read in a cross section file. Maybe you can email me a sample file and we could look at what is involved in adding this option in a future release.

We can manually enter in station/offset information from the MsPoints menu -> Compute Points -> Computer Points by Station/Offset/Elevation.

Jose,
were you ever able to solve your issue? I'd like to be able to read in a cross-section along a defined alignment too. Data from old hand-drawn plans.
Did the "manual station data entry" method work for you?

Alex.

Jose sent us a sample of his file and unfortunately we do not have any routines to currently read in a file with all of the cross section data in it.
It has been forwarded to the developement team to look into possibly adding this feature in the future.

The only option is the manual method but in his example he had many Kms of road with many sections, so it would take him a while to hand enter all of this data. It will work, just time consuming.
