« Part 1: My First Post in a Long, Long Time! Part 2 of Dovetail Calculator series Part 3: Modifications as per requested... »

There isnt a lot of time in the day left over at work to be able to do much of my own project work, but i have managed to scrape a few hours to get this going.

This is Version 3 of the Dovetail calculator, which includes Measurements on the Spreadsheet AND the Form shows all my formulas, so those of you who, like me, are sometimes wondering what the formulas are to a nice neat dovetail… its all here !

Again, both contain macros, so you must enable macros to make use of the application.

Below is a screen capture of the app, in case you are wondering what it looks like without opening it.

Maybe it’s something on my end but I’m getting a “Corrupt File” error when I try to open the XLSM file. The other one works fine. I’m using Excel 2010. Macros enabled. File is unblocked.

Please note that these files are now out of date. Refer to later postings for newer versions with more functionality. Feel free to ask for alterations if you would like to see even more functionality.

Not sure about the ‘Corrupt File’ ... there is a lot of Internet traffic between me uploading the file and you obtaining it. But I am glad that I had the sense to post 2 identical files (even if they are for different eras of computing). Perhaps a sonic screwdriver next time will fix it ;)
