Send me the model and we'll figure it out -

Dear Rand,

Without the model in hand the only we can say is that "Surface 123" is not meshed, or if the mesh exist then is not associated properly to surface 123. Delete mesh, mesh again and PREVIEW ANALYSIS to see if the error appear again.

 

This is the typical error that appear when you apply loads (or constraints) to geometry, but your forgot to mesh the geometry, OK?.

 

Best regards,

Blas.
