Covers Scout to 1st Class under the new 2016 program.
Note: this new version work with both Excel AND OpenOffice Calc.

ScoutTrax v3.5
(Updated August 16, 2017)

by Chris Oradat


    Covers all the requirements for all 17 Eagle Required Merit Badges. Contains all current revisions. As BSA revises their merit badges (always effective January 1), this spreadsheet will not only update to reflect the new requirements, but it will also keep a copy of the old requirements for one calendar year to allow scouts to finish up their partials, as per BSA policy. There were no major changes in 2016 (just some verbage), so this Trax is OK to use with the 2015 edition of Eagle Trax. The major version indicates the year of the update.

The spreadsheets were created in MS Excel 2010, and tested with Open Office 4.0.  Please note that these spreadsheets are not compatible with Microsoft Works. If you do not have access to Microsoft Excel, OpenOffice contains a free spreadsheet that is about 90% compatible with Microsoft Excel. OpenOffice is a free download from Apache Software Foundation on the Internet. This suite contains not only Calc, but also a word processor, a database, and a graphical presentation program. Click to download either the Windows or Mac version

PLEASE NOTE! More specific information on using and customizing the spreadsheet is contained in the spreadsheets Instructions worksheet. Please read this page before you begin using the spreadsheets!




Frank Steele of Troop 615, Coastal District, Bay Area Council of League City, TX was the creator of the CubTrax series of spreadsheets. Updates and support are the responsibility of Chris Oradat of Pack 363, Roadrunner District, Longhorn Council of Bedford, TX. The BSA does not endorse, support, or in any way acknowledge them.

If you need help, please don't hesitate to e-mail me, but before you do, please be sure that you have first read the Instructions page within the spreadsheet and then checked the Troubleshooting & FAQ page on this website thoroughly. I have found that almost all problems can be solved by simply reading these two documents.

If you want to simply drop me a note of 'thanks,' I'm always open to that too(smile).

Also, feel free to drop me an e-mail with any suggestions that you'd like to see in upcoming revisions. I promise, I will consider what you write. Many of the features you now find in these spreadsheets are a direct result of previous users sending me suggestions. However, please don't get offended if I don't use your suggestion.
