# We have modeled and calculated a steel warehouse in RSTAB. In parallel, we want to calculate the corresponding floor slab in RFEM. Can we transfer the "Foundation Loads" (support loads of the hall columns) to this RFEM model and recombine them for the floor slab?

If you open the hall not in RSTAB but in RFEM (create a copy of the model and change the file extension from *.rs8 to *.rf5), it will be possible to import support forces after calculating and saving. To do this, open the "Tools" in the model of the floor slab and select "Apply Support Reactions as Load".

Then, the support reaction can/must be transferred individually for each load case. The load combinations are then put together as usual using the RFEM program.
