Excel Doc from 08?


Hey, oldies from last year:
You remember that AWESOME excel document someone made? It was great, you just plugged in your word count every day, and it made graphs for you, charted progress, told you how much you had left, projected finish dates, etc etc. My hard drive got wiped last year (yegk) so I don't have that any more, but if someone does, can you post it somewhere? I loved it, felt like it was a great way to stay motivated and on track. Thanks!

I have it on the web site, but it's from last year, of course. It hasn't been updated yet. Let me see if I can find it...

Now the challenge: Can you update it to work with Windows Vista? I tried it (loaded it off my old laptop) and it gave me a bunch of bullcrap errors and stuff. Not good. So far I'm dealing with a makeshift one that's not nearly as pretty nor well-coded... :(

thepianist2008 -- it's likely a download error or a file incompatibility if you're having issues. I'm running Vista and can download / run it just fine.

Exactly, file incompatibility. I'm using Version 9.0 of Microsoft Works, which is supposed to open .xls files. However, when I try to open it, it reads the calculation in *** is too long or too complex, or contains a function that is not supported. I was hoping somebody might have gotten it to work and show all the pretty pie charts and graphs and everything.

Excel is a pay for use program from Microsoft.
You have to own the software to open and run an XL doc.
It isn't free-ware

Were you trying the RapidShare link? I double checked it and it seems to be working for free users. Just in case, I've attempted to add the file as an attachment to this post.

If it's a matter of Excel not working, I'm afraid I can't help you there. ;)

Let me know if you run into any other problems.

May I suggest to anybody having this problem to go ahead and check out OpenOffice. :) It's freeware and completely compatible with Microsoft Office documents.
