Has anyone else, at one time or another, pulled their hair out trying to develop spreadsheet-based design of aluminum members? The elements of welded aluminum members are the worst! Any good ideas out there? Currently, I am working around a multi-workbook set-up where you progress from general input workbook through material prop file, flexural, etc. All the workbooks are linked together, but I find the relative links to be a pain in the arse. I constantly am having to re-connect links that I thought were supposed to be relative. Maybe there is an excel setting that I am missing for forcing relative links to remain as such?
