ETABS Unable to write frame loads.

ETABS Unable to write frame loads.

ETABS Unable to write frame loads.


Its my first week trying to learn ETABS, working on a 20 storey RC frame.

I am trying to run the analysis but a message appears saying UNABLE TO WRITE FRAME LOADS and after that an other message appears saying UNABLE TO CREATE A MODEL TO RUN, as a result the analysis cannot be run. Any ideas?

I ran through the CHECK MODEL option and there are no warning for my model.

RE: ETABS Unable to write frame loads.

Want to attach the EDB file? It's really tough to be certain about anything based on your description.
