T.3 Viewing the output file

During the analysis process, STAAD.Pro creates an Output file. This file provides important information on whether the analysis was performed properly.

For example, if STAAD.Pro encounters an instability problem during the analysis process, it will be reported in the output file.

Note: If you did not select to open the output file after running the analysis in the previous procedure, you can open it any time through the user interface. On the Utilities ribbon tab, select the Analysis Output tool in the View group.

Tip: By default, the output file contains a listing of the entire input also. You may choose not to print the echo of the input commands in the Output file. On the Analysis and Design ribbon tab, select the Miscellaneous Commands > Set Echo tool option from the menu bar and the select the Echo Off option in the Set Echo dialog.
