Number of comment lines at the beginning of the file being read that will be skipped during the reading. Default = 0.
Use this command to read in a table of data from an external file into an ANSYS table array parameter. The external file may be created using a text editor or by an external application or program. The external file must be in tab-delimited, blank-delimited, or comma-delimited format to be used by
*TREAD. The ANSYS TABLE type array parameter must be defined before you can read in an external file. See
*DIMfor more information.
This command is not applicable to 4- or 5-D tables.
