Hi, You can open ETABS, go to File->Import and choose GT STRUDL/ STAAD file and use it to import staad file. If your staad model has floor loads, it is suggested that you comment them out and import without those loads and then add the slab panels to the ETABS model and apply loads to them. Generally, the model including loads and properties will get imported. It will be necessary to define the floor grid system and storey levels to navigate the geometry in ETABS. Hope that helps. Arun

grid lines manually in ETABS directly. Make sure the grid system being defined matches with the staad geometry. Arun
