Automatic Load Combinations

I have a building in a seismic zone. I have created the seismic loads. When I try to generate automatic combinations using ACI 2002 it doesn't include the seismic loads. I can only get the seismic loads included when I change the code for the loads from ACI 2002 to LRFD. What seems to be the problem. Is that something to do with robot or am I doing anything wrong.

The seismic combinations should be generated as shown on the attached picture. In case it is not done attach the compressed rtd file please. I'll have a look at it.

Thank you Artur. I was actually disregarding the accidental loads. This works for LRFD but it seems it doesn't for ACI. I will try it when I have a chance and let you know. Thanks again.
