as the error says, it cannot open the file. acclartificial. i am guessing the file has a file extensio. If so this extension also need to be included in the set Gaccel. If no extension, the program does not see the file named in the curent directory that it is operating in.

if you wrote it in text it is probably .txt .. all files are typically named : name.ext, the .ext is the extension part and what windows uses to determine what applicatiion to open if you click on the file. OpenSees doesn't use the file extension, but it does need to know what it is.

the windows browser only shows the name part of a file, the type shows the application associated with the extnsion. to see the actual full filename use a Terminal windows and type dir
