Field Output Selection not included in input file

(OP)
I am trying to get the reaction forces at a node set in my model. I select the Field Output as the domain I am interested in and choose the RF option under Forces/Reactions.

Upon creating my input file, the RF disappears. I tried manually adding it back in, but that just resulted in an Input File Processing error when I tried to run the job?

Does anyone know why it won't let me get reaction forces? I can get NFORCE data...is that what I want? (According to the manual this is: Forces at the nodes of an element from both the hourglass and the regular deformation modes of that element (negative of the internal forces in the global coordinate system).)
