Export Profile Chainage and Level as text to import into Hydrology Software

I need cross section information of a creek for a Hydrology program (DRAINS in Australia) and need to extract this from a surface I have created in Civil 3D.  I require the Chainage and Level for a profile which represents the creek cross section at several specific locations.  The information is essentially the data bands in a Profile which I can create, however I cannot see how to obtain this information in a form I can use.

 

Ideally the format of the data can be copy and pasted into Excel from which I can directly import the information into the software.

 

I would appreciate any direction on finding a solution (apologies for the simplistic question as I am new to C3D).

 

Thanks

I will take a stab at it.  I know hardly anything about DRAINS.

 

Rt click the profile line you want.  Select Edit Profile Geometry.  The Profile Layout Tools will appear, on the far right select the Profile Grid View.  You can copy all this data and paste in an Excel spreadsheet.

 

I am guessing this is the data you may need with some massaging.
