STAAD Pro v8i SS5 - Error Section Properties Not Entered for Member

We just recently installed SS5 for Staad.Pro v8i. (

However, it seems that there is a bug in the new version.

We try to select and assign a new member properties in Modeling and then run the analysis (or Ctrl + F5). After the analysis, we always see this **ERROR** SECTION PROPERTIES NOT ENTERED FOR A MEMBER. But if to be check the missing property, no entity with missing property is found.

Then we tried to change and assign a new member properties by using the STAAD EDITOR, wherein manually input was done to change the member property. Again, we run the analysis, and this time Zero (0) Errors and Zero (0) Warnings.

Can anyone help us why we keep receiving "errors" after analysis when we change/select member properties in Modeling?

  • thank you for the modified model.

    however, I am sorry but that is one of our issues. Everytime we change the member properties, it always

    transferred after Load Definition.

    That is why we need to change/delete that in the STAAD editor for us to run the analysis and not to have an ERROR

    in the report.

    This is quite troublesome because we need to check the STAAD editor if there the parameters were correct

    after we change in Modeling.

    We are not sure if this bug applies to all member properties.
