How can I generate load combinations automatically in an existing file retroactively?


To do this, open the “General Data” dialog box of the current model. Right-click the model description in the Data navigator.

Alternatively, you can open the “General Data” dialog box with the “Edit” menu.

In the “General Data” dialog box, you can first select the standard according to which the combinatorics is to be carried out, or if load combinations (CO) or result combinations (RC) should be created. 

If CO or RC are already available in the existing file, a query appears asking if the program should delete or keep the existing combinations.
