Question
What should .POW time-series file look like? 

Answer
To implement time varying data within FEFLOW you need to create a time-series file with a specific format!

You have 2 options: 

Option 1 -  .POW file is an ASCII-based text format

.POW file is an ASCII-based text format with two columns, one with time and the other with values. Accordingly, you can re-arrange the columns of the time-series in Excel and save it as an ASCII-based text file. Afterwards that you may change the extension from .txt to .pow . The file should be organized as follows, where x-values correspond to time and y-values to the variable being stored: 

ID1
! Comment line for time series 1
! ...
x1 y1
x2 y2
...
xm ym
END
# ID2
! Comment line for time series 2
! ...
x1 y1
x2 y2
...
xn yn
END
# IDn
! Comment line for time series n
! ...
 x1 y1
 x2 y2
 ...
 xo yo
END
END

Option 2 - Copy-paste Time Series Editor

Alternatively copying the Time Series Editor, you can also copy and paste easily the table between FEFLOW and Excel.
