select bars that has the same section

Dear all, I would like to ask you how it is possible to select all the bars having the same section. 

I have the problem of assigning the member type to the elements, in order  to perform the calculations in the design modules. 

I thought the easiest way to assign the correct member type (column, beam, etc...) would be on the basis of their section. For example, if I am able to select all the bars that has a given section, I can assign to all of them a given member type. 

To my knowlege, the only other way is to assign the member type one by one ,using indexes?

 

I hope you could give me a suggestion. 

Thank you in advance, 

best, dario
