Have prepared a blog post with general information on setting up MS Excel environment for using my spreadsheets. Activating the add-in, updating the links, and making modifications which may be caused by using other versions of Excel. The spreadsheets are created in Excel 2003, the post is based on opening files in Excel 2016.

Sorry! All my spreadsheets make use of vba, and some of the functions use data access objects (DAO) to get information from MS Access tables. It is done this way because traditionally a database was/is the proper place to store data not a spreadsheet. Additionally vba code is useful across more applications than a worksheet cell formula, and vlookup has some tight restrictions and is not all that reliable. Also unfortunately Excel and Access are not as tightly integrated as Borland Quattro Pro and Paradox were, which is where most of my spreadsheets started. At one stage I did have Excel worksheets grabbing data from Access tables directly, but an upgrade on one computer resulted in needing Access tables compatible with each version of Office. The other problem with Excel database queries is that it is near impossible to update the links to the database if the database file changes location. Consequently vba and DAO is actually easier to manage than using the Excel commands, as doesn't have these problems: though it may not seem so easy.

There are two sets of functions in schTechLIB, one set which make use of DAO and the other which require passing all the section and material parameters. In most instances the DAO functions call the latter.

There are thus two options available to you: Modify the workbook and remove all the functions which use DAO, or modify the vba code and change the path to the MS Access database.

I did upload a new version of schTechLIB as a quick fix to similar problem with AS4600, but that may have now crippled everything else.

I'll see if I can find time to revise schTechLIB and write some configuration macros.

Can you please provide instructions on how to get the AS4100 calculator working. I have downloaded all files, (schDsgn4100.xls, schStruMtrl.xls, schTechLIB.xla and struMtrl (access database - why do I need this?). I have tried updating the links to the .xls and .xla files, enabled the add-in, but it doesn't work. this is very disappointing so far.
PS I can be emailed at, if needed.
