Data Management RSTAB RFEM

When saving models the following message ist displayed: "Models '...' should be saved in folder 'C:\TEST'. This folder is not linked to a project. Do you want to create a new project for this folder?" What does it mean?

Answer

This message appears when saving models means that there isn't any link to an RSTAB project for the directory which you have selected for saving.

If your answer to the question "Do you want to create a new project for this folder?" is "No", the model will be saved in this directory. But it isn't assigned to any project then.

As a result, there is no name specified in the project field, for example in the printout report.

This is the reason why models should always be assigned to a project. The project itself represents only a link to a directory. In the Project Manager, you can get an overview about the projects.

But if your answer is "Yes", a new dialog box opens and you are asked to enter a project name for the existing directory.
