||During last decade, computer processing has been exceedingly replacing manualcalculations in performing structural analysis and design. Proprietary software gained greatpopularity because of their reliability and the saving they achieve and has covered a largearea in designlanalysis work requirement. Yet, a number of structural tasks is still uncoveredand requires customized software that should be developed to the specific requirement ofusers who are - in majority - structural engineers (not necessarily specialized in computerprogramming).For those users who need to develop customized programs to address the areas uncoveredby readily available proprietary software, SPREAD SHEET BASED SOFTWARE offers asuitable base. In this paper, the term SSBS will mean a proprietary software based on spreadsheet format which can be used as a media to develop customized programs to serve specificengineering requirements. As examples to that are the LOTUS 1-2-3 and the MS EXCEL.
