Sorry for the late response guys, had to make a trip out of the country.

John - I'm trying to review your comments now and see where you are referencing by the link you have mentioned. It shouldn't contain any links to an outside file source but I will review and get back to you with a resolution. Thank you for reviewing and catching this.

I think Cell B141 should read ...New York, 1989 ... instead of New Yark, 1959.

Good Spreadsheet

I have made the corrections to the spreadsheet Steve and uploaded a new version. I have extended your XLC Pro subscription by six months by way of thanks.

It looks like another good calculation Steve if we can resolve the problems I would like to publish it.

Also the named cells lug_Fu and Lug_FY appear to be incorrectly used giving #VALUE errors on Sheet 'Lift Beam Analysis'

Steve I am just reviewing this calculation now. In cell 'Adjustable Cross Beam'!$E$5:$F$5 the cell formula contains a link to another file ='C:\Users\MHaise\Downloads\[189537383-Spreader-Beam-BLOCK-E (1).xls]Longitudinal Beam'!L44 I assume it is safe to break this link?
