Postprocessing in Tecplot

Hi all,
Hope you're all doing well, despite of pandemic. Just one question: is it possible to use Tecplot 360 for post-processing of the D-Flow FM model results? The manual states that D-Flow FM can produce Tecplot output if MapFormat is set to 2 or 3. Well, I've tried both of those settings for MapFormat but to no avail. If I set MapFormat to 2, the model actually generates Tecplot map file, which seems to be not readable. Tecplot returns the following message if I try to open this file: 

Am I missing something? Any insights on this are very apereciated.
Regards,
Dmitry

OK, I figured it out. When setting MapFormat to 2 (or 3), D-Flow FM writes one (separate) grid file and multiple solution files. To load them in Tecplot, one should select the "Multiple files" option in the Tecplot Data Loader menu and then select the grid file first and then select the solution files.
