SAP2000 Matlab OAPI

I am trying to do some parametric study in SAP200 using Matlab as I need to run/analyze the model several hundred times.
I found very few sources online. I'd very much appreciate if you could share any MATLAB SAP2000 OAPI documentation and/or examples.


Here, everything is created from scratch, but I need to import from .s2k files, analyse that model and get some displacement from there.
So, far I have succeeded in importing the .s2k file, and analyzing them but I couldn't save the displacement/acceleration in a different text file. Also, everytime the file is imported I have to hit okay in a popup box ( https://goo.gl/YMM4qc ).
Since, I am doing it a few hundred times, it's somewhat pain in the butt to sit in front of the compute rand hitting done.

Thought you might have some input on this.
let me know if you think of anything.
