How to import to interconnect the MODEtoINTERCONNECT.txt file with S-parameters?

      I have been following this tutorial on parameter extraction of ring resonators using MODE (see link below). I obtained an S-matrix for the ring ports, using the mode expansion monitors setup and saved it to a .txt file. However, when I try to open the s-parameter file on Interconnect to an Optical N port S-parameter device, it does not recognize the format. According to the tutorial, it should be possible to import said file in interconnect, but I haven't figured out how.

      Thanks in advance.

      Hi Daaviet
      Could you please let us know the format of the s-parameter file? There are some requirements on the file format for the Optical N Port S Parameter: https://support.lumerical.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500007342302-S-parameter-file-formats

      Hi Indeed the file format does not match the ones referred in that link. However, I followed the tutorial which states that it should be possible to "During the calculation, S11, S21, S31 and S41 are saved to the text file MODEtoINTERCONNECT.txt which can be used to create a ring resonator element in INTERCONNECT". Below is the file I obtained. How should I proceed? Thank you.
