I tried to perform a response spectrum in my structure. However I can't proceed because of the error (ERROR: Data file file.db does not exist for RESUME). My modal analysis run successfully but I am getting this error when performing response spectrum. How can I fix this error?
ThanksJune 17, 2021 at 12:11 pmJune 17, 2021 at 12:33 pmMike RifeAnsys EmployeeDid you add the response spectrum system to the WB project after solving the modal analysis? If so then the modal analysis will not have the necessary files to perform the spectrum analysis. In that case the modal analysis did not 'know' that there would be a follow-on analysis so some of the solver files, like the database db file, were deleted after the solve.
If the above is not the case, what version are you using? Right-click the Solution object in the modal analysis and chose to open the folder containing the files. Then take a screen shot of the file listing and post it here.

I did what you have said, but the error is still there :(.
Thank you very much for the response as well "HiDid you add the response spectrum system to the WB project after solving the modal analysis?

That's what I did, after solving the modal analysis, I then added the response spectrum to the WB project. What should i do then to remove this error?
Anyway, I am currently using ANSYS Student Version 2020 R2 and here are the files inside the modal analysis solution folder:
Thanks and regards.
June 21, 2021 at 1:32 pmMike RifeAnsys Employeethank you for the modal file listing. So all the modal files [db, mode, full, esav, rst] that the spectrum analysis needs are there. So perhaps this is a different issue than I had in mind; how are you solving the spectrum? Locally from Mechanical? Or do you write out the spectrum input file and submit it manually to solve somewhere else? Via RSM to a compute server? Something else?
June 21, 2021 at 5:27 pmMike RifeAnsys EmployeeI'm guessing that you are solving locally due to this being an Student version question. Can you show us the full path to those modal files? Are you using Microsoft OneDrive and if so is the WB project saved to a OneDrive location? This may be a conflict with a OneDrive feature like auto backup. Mike
June 22, 2021 at 10:29 amlleonartSubscriberthank you again for your response.
I am solving it locally from mechanical. This is what's inside of my WB project by the way:
I am not using Microsoft Onedrive. This is the full path of the modal files:
C:\Users\mypc\Desktop\Project\Data Gathering\0. Bridge Model\ANSYS Model\REVISED\Rev 4\BongoBridge_rev4_files\dp0\SYS-1\MECH\
I tried to model everything again from start, created a new folder but still the same error appeared :( .
June 22, 2021 at 10:46 amAniketAnsys EmployeeI see that is already helping you out but I thought of just checking the following:
Please check if you have the option (in Mechanical) ÔÇ£RSM Output Files DownloadÔÇØ set to ÔÇ£ShowÔÇØ?
If yes, please set the below option to ÔÇ£HideÔÇØ (instead of ÔÇ£ShowÔÇØ) and "resolve" the Modal. This time when you hit Solve on the response spectrum, the solver files corresponding to the modal should not get erased.

The error is gone now. I just created another file, saved it in different path and finally it worked.
I am very grateful to your help. Thanks again! Cheers!.
September 17, 2021 at 6:09 pmFrustratedANSYSUserSubscriberThis is obviously a bug. I have similar issue.
September 17, 2021 at 6:12 pmFrustratedANSYSUserSubscriberThanks for what.... No one provided any solution for you.
September 21, 2021 at 4:03 pmApril 11, 2022 at 2:11 pmsebastienlabbeSubscriberDear I had to investigate on this problem, because we use Harmonic Response linked to a Modal Analysis in many classroom examples and exercises -- was working for any previous year, but not this year. I found out that the same problem happens for any analysis that has its Results linked to the Setup of a second analysis. For instance, Results of Static Structural linked to the Setup of Buckling will lead to a similar error. The most frustrating observation in this problem is having a File Explorer Window showing the results files actually disappear when solving the second analysis.
It appears that when I SET THE LANGUAGE ON ENGLISH IN WORKBENCH, the problem disappears. Normally we would set the language to French (French University here).
We use Academic licences with 2021 R1
