I am trying to run HYDRUS-1D with almost 22,000 rows of P and PET data, but this means I have to manually edit the ATMOSPH.IN file. I have read the FAQ on this topic, which says I should use Notepad or similar program to edit the ATMOSPH.IN file. I fully understand that part but my original P and PET data are in MS-Excel, and when I try to copy and paste from MS-EXCEL into the ATMOSPH.IN file (which is open in Notepad), the new data does not line up with the data already in the file. I can't see how to force the data coming from Excel to match the pre-existing format text / data format in ATMOSPH.IN. Has anyone else had this problem ? Is there another text editor which might be better than Notepad ? A script on matlab or Python? So far, I have tried using Notepad and even tried to edit it in Excel, but still can't get it right.
Thank you for helping!

You can edit the file in Excel as well. You just need to save it at the end as a text file named J.
