Error in smkreport when running onetime ptagfire sector


I have stuck in an error in the log file of smkreport when running onetime script in ptagfire

 Program SMKREPORT, Version SMOKEv4.5_Apr2017
 Online documentation                 
 Program SMKREPORT to take any combination of SMOKE intermed-
 iate files (but at least an inventory file) and generate
 one or more user-defined reports in any combination of output
 You will need to enter the logical names for the input and
 output files (and to have set them prior to program start,
 using "setenv <logicalname> <pathname>").
 You may use END_OF-FILE (control-D) to quit the program
 during logical-name entry. Default responses are given in
 brackets [LIKE THIS] and can be accepted by hitting the
 <RETURN> key.
 Value for PROMPTFLAG:  N returning FALSE
 Returning default value TRUE for query:
 "Continue with program?"
 Value for PROMPTFLAG:  N returning FALSE

 File "REPCONFIG" opened for input on unit:  98

 Value for REPLABEL:  'ptagfire'
 Value for REPLABEL:  'ptagfire'
 Value for REPORT_ZERO_VALUES not defined;returning default:   FALSE

ERROR: input file not found: AREA

 Could not open input file "AREA".
 *** ERROR ABORT in subroutine OPENREPIN
 Ending program "OPENREPIN".

Somehow, the program is trying to locate area file while I have the output of PNT file. This is a point sector, so why does it need area file? Is there anything incorrect in my running script?

Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks.


Hi Jess,

Could you provide more info on the emission modeling platform that you were using and content of your ptagfire smoke run script?

Hi, Huy,

I attached the running script. I am using 2014 NEI v2 and kept the original settings.



Jess -

Could you do a quick check at let me know the content of inventory list file

It should not list more than two files:
