Hi all ... Am trying to run a model with VUSDFLD+vgetvrm to get strain components from the odb. But am getting an error ERROR in job messaging system: Error in connection to analysis. I already posted about this error message and got no reply 🙁 . If someone can point out a possible reason for this error, that may help me to resolve the issue. Also if anybody is interested in looking the problem more closely , I am open to sending the source files. thank you.
