DESCRIPTION:



          The STIFFNESS ANALYSIS command will abort if member elastic end

     connections are defined, two or more independent loading conditions

     are active, and at least one of these loading conditions has member

     loads.



          A work-around is to execute the STIFFNESS ANALYSIS command for

     each load individually as follows:



               LOAD LIST 1

               STIFFNESS ANALYSIS





               LOAD LIST 5

               STIFFNESS ANALYSIS



     This procedure may be performed more efficiently by LOAD LISTing as

     a group all loads which do not contain member loads.  Loadings which

     do contain member loads must be processed individually.
