Is it possible to extract reinforcement required in some columns by using VBA macro in a tabular format after analysis and design?
If possible please guide me how to do it.
Since the staad output format is quite linear and standard, it should be relatively easy to do so. You need to use Excel and VBA. Open the .ANL output file and parse the lines when you reach a column design statement, you can extract member number, member size, reinforcement requirement, any warning, etc.
Hope that helps
