The MODFLOW menu becomes active once the MODFLOW model has been built in GMS. The menu has two submenus: Optional Packages and Advanced. The commands in the MODFLOW menu are listed below:

New Simulation... 
Creates a new MODFLOW simulation and brings up the Global Options/Basic Package dialog. If a simulation exists then the current one will be deleted and a new one will be made.
Delete Simulation... 
Deletes the current MODFLOW simulation.
Check Simulation... 
Brings up the Model Checker dialog. This generates a list of possible errors and warning messages in the top scrolling window.
Run MODFLOW... 
Initiates the MODFLOW executable. GMS will ask if to save the project before running the executable.
Read Solution... 
Opens a window to search for a previous MODFLOW solution.
Flow Budget... 
Shows the model's flow budget as one zone (default) or multiple user defined zones.
Global Options... 
Opens the MODFLOW Global/Basic Package dialog to set up a MODFLOW simulation.
HUF – Hydrogeologic Unit Flow... 
Brings up the HUF Package dialog. This command is only available when the package option has been selected in the MODFLOW Packages dialog. For more information, see HUF Package.
LPF Package... 
Opens the flow dialog to insert hydrologic parameters. (May not be LPF) This command is only available when the package option has been selected in the MODFLOW Packages dialog.
PCG – Pre. Conj.-Gradient Solver... 
Opens the MODFLOW PCG Package solver dialog for the selected solver. (May not be PCG2)
UPW – Upstream Weighting... 
Opens the UPW Package dialog. This command is only available when the package option has been selected in the MODFLOW Packages dialog.
NWT – Newton Solver... 
Opens the MODFLOW NWT Solver dialog. This command is only available when the package option has been selected in the MODFLOW Packages dialog.
OC – Output Control... 
Opens the MODLFOW Output Control dialog to choose what comes out of a MODFLOW run.
Optional Packages > 
Use the MODFLOW Packages dialog to select which packages are active in the menu.
BCF – Block Centered Flow... 
Opens the MODFLOW Block Centered Flow Package dialog. This command is only available when the package option has been selected in the MODFLOW Packages dialog. See BCF Package to learn more.
CHD – Time-Variant Specified-Head... 
Starts the MODFLOW Time Var. Head Package dialog. See CHD Package to learn more.
CLN – Connected Linear Network... 
Opens the CLN Process dialog. See CLN Process to learn more.
CLN Wel – CLN Well... 
Opens the MODFLOW CLN Wells Package dialog. See CLN Process to learn more.
DRN – Drain Package... 
Opens the MODFLOW Drain Package dialog. See DRN Package for more information.
DRT – Drain Return Package... 
Brings up the MODFLOW Drain return Package dialog. To learn more, see DRT Package.
EVT – Evapotranspiration... 
Launches the MODFLOW EVT Package dialog. See EVT Package to learn more.
ETS – Evapotranspiration Segment... 
Opens the MODFLOW ETS Package dialog. For more information, see ETS Package.
GAGE – Gage... 
Starts the MODFLOW GAGE Package dialog. See GAGE Package to learn more.
GHB – General Head Package 
Opens the MODFLOW General Head Package dialog. For more information, see GHB Package.
