Hello ANSYS community,
I'm working with APDL macros to run a linear harmonic analysis using mode-superposition in ANSYS 18. The harmonic analysis works well for the first defined load vector, however when I try to restart the modal analysis to define another load vector I get the following error message:
"Element order vector is not found in the database. The previous modal solution is probably not saved into the db file or wrong database is used."
I attached the relevant extracts of the APDL code I'm using. The error message occurs in the main file in the line with the solve command of the restarted modal analysis. If you need further macros please let me know.
I'm grateful for any idea you may have.

Can you use a Blockquote/Preformatted styling and paste the relevant APDL code?

modeOrder = exMat(1,exInd)
radTan = exMat(2,exInd)
cosSin = exMat(3,exInd)
ATOFORCIT !Macro creating load vector
minMode = 1
maxMode = numModes
modeInd = '%minMode% through %maxMode%'
lvscale,1 !! Scale Down Any Loads/acel Because They Are Already Applied From LVSCALE
outres,all,none !! SVAR: State variables; LOCI: Integration point locations
MCFCTRL.MAC !! Modal coordinates store
I should additionally mention that this code works with ANSYS version 14.5. However, this code should run with ANSYS 18 and at the moment this is not the case.

I can't tell of error errors in there...maybe someone else can. It is possible that the restart solution overwrote the files needed for the modal restart.
Can you go through Example 5.8 in the help that describes a modal analysis restart and see if you are missing something?
