# Link Area Input File to PROFILS.DAT

Connects the soil-IDs used in the Area Input File to the PROFILS.DAT database.

## Possible Problems & Solution

### ENVI-met reports Missing Profiles and replaces them

One or more soil-IDs used in the Area Input File are not defined in PROFILS.DAT database.
ENVI-met has replaced them by the default profile (the first profile in the database).
The profile is either really missing in the PROFILS.DAT database or the ID used in the Model Area is different.

Attention: Space is also a character! “<SPACE>s” is not the same as “s<SPACE>”!!!

Don't forget that the Nesting Grids also demand a soi-lID! Here, the same rules apply as for the “normal” inner grids.
