Can you run multiple BeOpt files in sequence

I have 5 different BeOpt files (each with the max of 20 cases). Is there a way I can automatically run all 5 files sequentially? For example, after file 1 finishes its simulations, can I automatically start running file #2?

Thanks for the help!

What are you modelling exactly? If you are using the same geometry and global parameters, and are not using optimization/parametric analysis, you might be able to achieve your goal in another way. When you're on the Options screen it is possible to create multiple designs for the same case; right click a label above the +/- buttons.** Each design can have its own set of option choices. Thus, you can have more than 20 fixed permutations of a model in the same file.

** This is not immediately obvious, but discoverable if you ever select multiple points from the results graph and export them to a new case. You get one new case, with a design for each selected point.

Unfortunately that is not currently possible.
