    First, I think the notation in cells T13 and T33 of the summary page threw me. Is there a typo in those cells with a minus sign instead of an intended equals sign, '-' rather than '='? That would make sense from the equations below, finding y as a function of x in column T and x as a function of y in column U. I was trying to make sense of subtracting f(x) from y. ...
    Correct, the cells should read 'y=f(x)'. Just a typo.
    While we're at it, cell T22 should read 'avgG' instead of 'N'. A copy/paste error.

    column S notation in the summary page is such that the following correspondences to the equation above are correct:

    b = a
    c1 = b = coefficient of x)
    c2 = c = (coefficient of x^2) ...
    Correct again. I used 'y = c2*x^2 + c1*x + b.

    Unfortunately, I cannot see what you did since I don't have the software, but many thanks for the effort!

    In order:

    Steven, the thousands of folks who have contributed to Star Office/openoffice/LibreOffice over many years are the ones who saved you $150. Thank them, or send them a percentage donation of your choosing at thedocumentfoundation.org.

    Glad it's working for the others who have reported in. Had a great get together this afternoon with some very nice folks, and viewing of some very fine original mid-late 19th century photos that one of our members has collected.

    Ralph, you can, if you choose, get the Mac port of openoffice at NeoOffice.org. Free, and always will be.
    Thanks for the additional info. I guess I could export the .ods version back to .xls, but I have no way to verify that the changes would carry over correctly, and I sort of have a personal policy of avoiding that sort of thing when openoffice is freely available to everyone under Mac, Windows, linux, et. al. From my perspective that's really about Microsoft trying to impose de facto standards that allow them to control the market rather than complying with fully public ISO standards that the open source office packages support.

    Again the real thanks should go to Ralph for his work on this spreadsheet and for posting it for others to use freely.

    Thank you again. Now, it's my turn to create proper instructions. I need about a week to do this. It will be posted as pdf.

    I'm using Linux Ubuntu release 10.04 (lucid), Kernel-Linux 2.6.32-27-generic, GNOME 2.30.2 and Open Office 3.2 version. Excel file works just fine.

    So am I. Try checking the Summary page of the spreadsheet and see if you don't get Err:502 in cells column U, and to the right of c2, c1, and b in column T, or missing/misplaced curves in the two graphs to the left on that page.

    Sorry, I was working on .ODS file not .xls file. My mistake. The .ODS works fine. I opened .xls file but it is read only mode even if I changed permissions. Strange! It looks same as .ODS file but I cannot input data. Any suggestions?

    Regards

    Don't bother with the .xls file, it won't work on openoffice as posted because of differences in syntax. The .ods file only contains modifications to correct for the syntax differences between openoffice and excel. If you want to look at the .xls file contents, you could probably just re-save it under a new name and then load, look at, and modify it. If it's really an OS file permissions issue (not just openoffice preventing you from losing data by editing something in .xls that openoffice doesn't deal with correctly), then just right click on the file in the file browser (Nautilus by default) and then click on Properties, then the Permissions tab in the window that opens and give it the read/write/execute permissions you wish it to have. You may need to enter your root password to change permissions.
