I did a structural analysis using the RSTAB 8 and sent it to my colleague for checking purposes, however, the calculation cannot be opened by means of RSTAB 7. Could you help me, please?


One option is to select the 'File → Open' command in RSTAB 7. Then, you can display all files. Now select an RSTAB 8 file. Subsequently, it is possible to get it opened.

In general, your colleague should calculate the structure once more. This could lead to some small deviations.
If your colleague only wants to check the model, it is also possible to use the Viewer.
