Anyone interested in this calculation may want to check out the perforated wood shear wall worksheet that I uploaded. It is based on a newer document (SDPWS-2015 instead of IBC-2003)and includes graphics that update in real time to depict wall perforations. see here.

This is nice, but what are the forces around the opening? Is it possible to get this information?

Sorry I should have explained there is no update to the Excel file I simply updated the description to include a calculation preview in response to a user request. [Admin]

I like the look of the spreadsheet. How did you create the graphics? They don't appear to be excel drawing tools.

Why have so much of the calculation buried in hidden columns? Wouldn't it be more meaningful for a reviewer, i.e. city, county or state plans examiner, to see all of the calculations that go into F. The comments have a lot of useful information in them, but none of that will show up when the sheet is printed out to submit to the plans examiner.

Several of your equations appear to be a special function called embed. Is this an excel function or from an add-in?

Have you considered highlighting the cells that require input to differentiate them from calculated results? Any thoughts of including the shear tables?
