Possible error in steel connection design module

I'm designing a steel roof structure using Robot 2012 x64 on Win7. When designing steel connections (column base) the program seems to confuse tensile and compressive forces. I've attatched screen captures from a test I've made. When calculating the connection with pure compression, the results are given for tensile capacity.

 

Am I missing something vital, or is there an error in Robot?

 

Thanks!
