Excel version: The spreadsheets have been tested on
both Macintosh (OS 7.5 and later) and on Windows 95/98/2000,
XP, and Vista machines. They have been tested with versions
of Excel from 5.0 and later. 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 Sun Microsystems
on the Internet.
version: If you do not have access to Microsoft Excel,
OpenOffice contains a spreadsheet program called Calc that
will work with the OpenOffice version of the software. The
entire OpenOffice suite is a free download from Sun Microsystems
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
version and the Mac
version. Note: the Mac version of OpenOffice will only
run on OS X.

Steele of Troop 615, Coastal District, Bay Area
Council of League City, TX is solely responsible for the
VenturingTrax series spreadsheets and their support. The
BSA does not endorse, support, or in any way acknowledge
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. To be honest, I get very frustrated
with users that take up my time sending me e-mails asking
me for help in doing things that I've already covered on
the Instructions page, or on the Troubleshooting & FAQ
page (or both).
however, you want to simply drop me a note of 'thanks,'
I'm always open to that (smile).
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.
