header requirements for sliding glass door
 
I want to install a sliding glass door on my lower level through existing block wall. What header should I install to go over the door? Do I need to install block or cripple studs to frame up the sides?

Nobody can correctly answer that without complete information. Pictures would help too. What loads are carried over the wall currently? Where are you located? How big will the opening be?

That is an engineering question and could be answered by an engineer or your county permitting office.
