 structure or for a two story structure?
 Thank you   >>

First, I would appreciate it if you would direct comments to my personal 
email address seaintonln(--nospam--at) rather than to the listservice. I also 
invite you to join the Online Listservice by following the directions at the 
bottom of this message and substitute "join Online" for "join Seaint" (no 
quotes). I think discussions about the spreadsheet are more appropriate on 
the online listserver.

The new spreadsheet is for multi-story structures (residential) up to three 
stories. I am considering modifying the analysis to convert it to any 
structure up to three stories. To do this, I will have to configure the Rho 
and Omega factors as well as to provide new conditional statements for 
seismic regions 1 and 2. These are not that difficult and I think in time I 
will do this so that the program can be used nationally. 

Some of the sheets say single story because I used the sheet format (title 
block, bubbles and lines) from my old one story design program. These will be 
tweaked out and will change as time goes on.
