6X6 Load Bearing Cap

Hi All,

I misplaced my software for calculating concentric load bearings. Can somebody tell me what the load bearing capacity of a 6X6 pressure treated porch column would be? Any help/guess would be appreciated. Im in a bind here and need to complete this job by next week Thursday. The homeowner is the type that wants to see EVERYTHING!
