Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

Hi Eulerfan - Mark 3 sounds great to me. If I understand it right, it would work (entering input data) pretty much like a spreadsheet - Just use the menu keys to chose the various fields. Using the new programming commands seems to be straight forward too. Thank you! - Jim Williams

Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

Hi All - Well, I have played with my "home made" emulator and am I surprised! Gee, 8 rows of lines with 36 charterers in each line sound like a lot - especially after working with 2 lines with 21 charters per line for so many years (HP42s). Well, here is a copy of my emulator display. I have added ....

Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

Good Morning, Eulerfan -My! You really have been thinking about my request. I see both pro's and con's in both of your proposals. I'll call your first proposal (using menuvar) No. 1 and this proposal (using TEXT r,c) No. 2. I hope that other people that are following this thread will offer their ide...

Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

Hi Eulerfan - Brilliant! I think you have a solution for my needs. I, at first, had one problem with your plan. That was my long names for my input variables. They just wouldn't fit into the VARMENU labels. Then I thought of a solution for this. A picture is worth a thousand words: INPUT DATA: A1: D...

Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

Hi Eulerfan - Thank you for all of your work on this proposal. I am beginning to see and understand the complexity involved in this request. I will try to answer your questions and explain better my needs. 1) Pilots work with check lists. The output should be in tabular form. 2) The only reason I re...

Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

Yes, Dave, I have quite a few spreadsheets loaded in my Casio fx-CG50. The spreadsheet app is not a full blown spreadsheet program. It lacks some functions that I use (like VLOOKUP), but on the whole, it is very useful. It does exactly what I first wrote about. That is, in column 1 I can list all of...

Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

Hi All – I appreciate all of the replies to my post here. Thank you. I thought that I would give an example of the type of problems that I work with just to demonstrate why I like spreadsheets so much when it comes to input and output of data. Here is the input/output data for a flight I made recent...
