RAW-file: It is written on the first line of the file, at least if PSSE has written the file.

For .SAV is it not so easy. PSSE cannot open a .SAV file created by a later version. I.e. rev 33 cannot open rev 34 file but it can open files written by older PSSE-versions.

Hi, Thank you for your reply. For *.SAV file, How I can check in which version the said *.SAV file is prepared or saved ? For example, I have received some case files (*.SAV format) from someone. Now, how I can check in which version these case files were prepared ?

For *.RAW files, in the progress window, it only mentions which version I am using and there is no indication on which version the received *.RAW files prepared. Could you please see and help me, this would be much appreciated.

Have you opened the .raw file in a text editor and checked the first line of the file? Can you open the case in PSSE?

Why do you need to know the version of the saved case?
