How to use .con file for connection check in RAM Steel Module.

 Subarea: Connection Check; Reports; Tables

I've created a .con connection check table but can't find the folder it needs to be saved in to perform a connection check. 

The .con file must be a plain text (ASCII) file in the proper format and located in the program tables directory to be available within the program. The location of the tables folder can be confirmed in the ramis.ini file which is always located here, C:\ProgramData\Bentley\Engineering\RAM Structural System\RamIS.ini.  For information on the .con file format, please refer to the RamManager.pdf program manual. If the .con file is not available, try the following steps:

  1. Close RAM SS.
  2. Go to default Tables directory, typically here, C:\ProgramData\Bentley\Engineering\RAM Structural System\Tables
  3. Confirm the .con file in that location and is a plain text file.
  4. Now start RAM SS and check.
