Question on using datafile in simul


I am solving a deterministic model from one steady state to another and sometime simul fails to find a transition path if two steady state differ too much. Can I provide initial guess of the transition path? I think it is the option datafile but I could not find any example of how to use it. The manual states:
"If the variables of the model are not constant over time, their initial values, stored in a text file, could be loaded, using that option, as initial values before a deterministic simulation. "

How should the text file be ordered?

Thanks a lot.

Please provide me with a mod-file and an m-file containing the initial values. I will look into it.

I figured it out. I should use initval_file instead.
