Allow storage for NV variables. 200 maximum are allowed. Defaults to 10 (except for an explicit dynamics analysis, which defaults to 30). TIME (variable 1) should also be included in this number.

Command Default

Allow storage for 10 variables (30 variables for an explicit dynamics analysis).


Specifies the number of variables allowed for data read from the results file and for data resulting from an operation (if any). For efficiency, NV should not be larger than necessary. NV cannot be changed after data storage begins.
