You are correct. Something I missed and will update.

For example: ASCE 7-10 ASD Load Combination 7 is stated as:
0.6D + 0.6W.
The spreadsheet shows it as 0.6D + W + H which is how it is written in ASCE 7-05.
They have increased the design velocities on the wind speed maps in ASCE 7-10 and the 0.6 reduction in the load combination is supposed to compensate for that.

I used ASCE 7-10 to write them. I double checked and they seem correct. Where do you see the difference? I have had other engineers check them also.

This spreadsheet shows Load Combinations for ASCE 7-05; not ASCE 7-10 as it states in the title. The combinations for ASCE 7-10 have completely changed since the 05 edition and this spreadsheet has not been updated.
