Sir, In rcdc the beam length in design input panel is not match with the drawing panel. Drawing panel shows the dimensions as per the staad file but the not same in input panel.Lot of variations particularly in beam length in input panel I couldn't understand this issue.suggestions appreciated.Thanks in advance
can you please describe your issue with some snap shots and supporting file of RCDC and STAAD? It will be helpful for us to understand the actual scenario.
Thanks & regards,
Global Technical Support
Lot of variations in beam dimensions
EX; BEAM NO; 33 – 3090mm in drawing layout but 4490 mm in design in put
BEAM NO; 35 - 4534 mm in drawing layout but 7640mm in design input
Can you please upload the file here?
As per your advice I have attached the file
Thanks for the file. Yes, I can also see the difference in the values. This requires some investigation. Can you please provide the .std file from where you have imported this beam file?
Thank you for the response, I have attached the staad file

Issue in reading beam length if the beam is consist of more than one member has been resolved in RCDC 8.0.0 version. The released date is December 2018. refer below link to download release notes. see defect solved list.
Please note that, the issue is only in reading beam length, there is no issue in beam design. Reading member forces and its design is correct. Also, this issue is not applicable to beam consist of only one member from analysis.
there is impact only on the Beam elevation and BBS due to incorrect beam length. I would suggest you to provide the correct clear span to beam.it is available in modify - Edit Beam data - Edit clear span and level tool.
if you modify the correct length here, it will impact only the beam elevation and BBS.I would suggest you to upgrade the RCDC to latest version. Refer below link for release notes of RCDC for recent release since year 2019.
