||The paper deals with a database application, which scope is to assist during preliminaty designof wooden nail plate trusses. The same application can be used for archiving the designs. Themain idea is to use the old designs efficiently, because there are a lot of old designs made usinga CAD-system. The program is written for Paradox and some subroutines (e.9. a graphicalpresentation of the design) is written using ANSI C. The most essential data of the old designstored to the database are the project data, material and geometrical entities, loading data and thestructural design data. Also, the grouping of different types of trusses is essential in order to usethe database application efficiently. All this information is available, because the data has beentransferred to the database from the "object oriented" CAD-system during last ten years.
