Corrupted codes in .out files

Hello fellow EFDC users:My EFDC Explorer 7 generates corrupted output files. All results can be visualized correctly within the Explorer interface (so I know the data is fine), but I wanted to look at the .OUT files using Windows Notepad directly and it gave me messy codes (Please see the attached the snapshot). I cannot see the result in Excel or UltraEdit either. I’m wondering if there is any trick I can use to fix this. Thanks,Hengchen

EFDC .OUT files are in binary format so cannot be viewed in a text editor. If you are familiar with Fortran you can use the utility we provide here to export the files to ASCII format:
