Do i need to consider the tension and compression on each of the internal segments that make up the total full height sheething (SUM Li). or just the ends?

You must consider what are the tension and compression forces.  Each end
of each perforated shear wall segment shall be designed for a
compression force = tension force.  The compression chord force at the
end of each perforated shear wall segment is T = C = V/[Co x sum Li],
Where Co = shear resistance adjustment factor and sum Li = sum of the
widths of perforated shear wall segments (full height sheathing).

I have a perforated shearwall question see if some one can help me out.
If
i design a perforated shearwall instead of two standard shear wall
separated
by a window, i only need to provide hold-downs at both ends.  My
question
is, in designing the supporing Element(Beam), do i still consider the
tension and compression forces at the ends of the oppening in the middle
of
my shear wall or just the forces at the ends of the perforated shear
wall?
