deflection/stress not proper in linear static analysis

i am modelling a cylinder with a C section on top of it, on the extreme left end, its clamped(fixed) and i have applied point loads at the cantilever tip(at nodes).. the whole model is made with shell elements...... i am doing a linear static analysis, and when i check the displacements, i see that only the element connected to the loading node gets deflected, the stress/displacement is zero everywhere else, i am sure that there is no fixity other than the one at extreme left end. please guide me.

attach your model (if it is not confidential) and we will look at it.

your are working with groups? 

did you launch a free free analysis to check your six rigid body modes? 

check you are constraining the right nodes and verify the load you've applied...
