Dear Sir ,

It is a problem concerning your version type. Please contact the agent in your territory. This is the best way to resolve this problem.

Dear Ryo

It means you have more points in your PHI(PHIDA) file than your satellite can represent.

First you should know if your PHOENICS version allows you to re-compile the satellite. Don't worried if not, you have some other resources.

If so, then find the file "satlit.for" (\d_satell\satlit.for or \d_satell\d_win32\satlit.for ) and put the recommended value into the parameter NFDIM. Recompile the executable "satexe" (find bldsat or bldsat.bat). Rerun the VRViewer and it will work now.

If your PHOENICS is not a re-compilable version, then you should "cut" the PHI(PHIDA) file. Make a little program to read the data phile and splitted it by two, for instance, depending the value of NFDIM your satellite can handle. I mean re-build your data file saving only a set of values (nodes) or a set or variables. Now you should read two PHI(PHIDA) files for the complete data analysis, but it should not be a problem.

I know that PHOENICS has a tool to convert PHI files into PHIDA files and viceversa. In fact, it contains several tools for data processing. Read the information you have about it or see into the directory d_utils. Maybe you will find the way to do this without to program a single code line. Let me know if you succeded. Good luck
