Why would you be looking at RSt2 were at 2008, three versions ahead.
If the analysis program has an API you can most likely create the link.

I agree with Tom that it would be better for you to use RST2008 but if you have other constraints, you can interface the 2 products.
RST2 has an API and a Software Development Kit on the DVD called SDK that provides examples how to extract the data from RST2 and also to update the model if changes are made in SAP2000
You also need to use the latest SAP that has an API that you can use to generate the SAP model.
In summary, you need to write
- a piece of software using the RST2 API that will extract the data from RST2.
- a piece of software using the SAP2000 API that will create a SAP model.
- a piece of software using the SAP2000 API that will extract the changes made in SAP 2000.
- a piece of software using the RST2 API that will update the model with the changes made in SAP2000.
I hope it helps
