Hello,

What file extenion are your data?  Test.Lab can import .sdf, RPCIII, UNV or UFF, .mat, ASAM ODS classic and ASAM ODS XML.

Thanks Hong for your quick reply.

Extension from Abaqus is ODB.

I have gone through the PDF document for which importing data into Test Lab, this file format is not listed.

Is there any possible method to do so.

Since ODB file extension is not an option for Test.Lab import, is it possible to export to the file extension I mentioned previously in Abaqus?  What other file extension can you export to?  Can you export to Excel or ASCII?

I have no tool to convert or export it to the file formats which you mentioned.

I can export manually to excel but need lot of time to do for 900 data points or even more.

I'm looking for easier option.

Appreciate your efforts for thinking on this.

I guess it could be the only solution.

Abaqus analysis --> Write each nodal transient accelerations(X, Y and Z) --> Excel sheets --> Import into LMS TL and assign to Each node ID.

It could take lot of my time unless if i write a script.

Let me know if anyone has better option.

Thanks @Hong and @Z_L

I am not a Abaqus user but have done FEA for 30+ years. I cannot believe Abaqus has not function to export all the results into Excel rather than asking the user to export them one by one. 

Have you contacted Abaqus support team or someone more experienced with Abaqus for help?
