Hi, this appears to be a nice spreadsheet, but unfortunately it is not opening for me properly. I am on a mac, so that may be the issue. I have tried excel for mac 2011, numbers and open office, and non seem to properly open the output.
The spreadsheet needs VBA, so Numbers and Open Office definitely won’t work.
Excel for mac 2011 has VBA, so I don’t know why that isn’t working. Unfortunately I don’t have access to a mac, so I’m not in a position to investigate it.
If anyone else has a solution, I ‘d be glad to hear from you.
I’ve heard you can put windows on Mac as an additional operating system that should do the trick for you!
