Simulate: Measuring Forces at Weighted link Independent Surface

Hello!

 

Currently I have a model that contains a weighted link that connects 5 different fasteners holes to a dependent node. The dependent node has a 10 kip load applied to it. My goal is to find the force applied to each individual fastener position in the WCS. When I place a force measure on these independent surfaces I get the following warning: 

 

"Resultant measure XX may not be evaluated correctly because there are multi-point constraints (MPCs) near the resultant measure. MPCs may occur in models with mixed or incompatible meshes, links, fasteners or user coordinate system (UCS)" 

 

Is there a different method to gather the force exerted on the independent surfaces? This process is very simple in other FEA programs so it seems strange that it would be more complex than a standard measure. 

 

Thank you in advance.
