What does"#NAME?" mean? This means that your Excel does not have the proper Add-Ins. Go to the top menu of Excel and click on "Tools" and then click on "Add-Ins". A display will appear showing the add-ins installed. Make sure that the "Analysis ToolPak" is checked. If it is not checked, then check the "Analysis ToolPak" box and click "OK". Excel will then prompt you to insert your Microsoft® Excel or Office Suite CD to load the "Add-In". Once this is completed, then enter a new start date on the program.
CSI only offers their programs as online downloads - so how do I backup the program? After downloading the file to your hard drive, copy the file to a floppy disk or burn it to a CD for safe keeping.
The Days "over/under" is incorrect.

The steps for making the first schedule are as follows:
1. Enter the Start Date in cell "C8"
2. Revise all WkDays for each task item. Note always enter "0" for all WkDay items that are for ordering or contracting.
3. After entering all the WkDays, go to task item 153 and make note of the date in the completed column. Remember that date and now enter it in the "Proposed Complete" cell. This "Proposed Complete" cell date should not be changed from that point forward as you continue updating this specific job # schedule. This date will effect the days over/under by using this "Proposed Complete date".

Does this program recalculate starts and completions if the home becomes behind or ahead of schedule. That's the purpose of this program. When you enter an actual completion date to replace a "N" the program will automatically recalculate the dates from that item completely to the completion dates.
Do I have to enter dates that fall on Mondays through Fridays? Yes!
What are the small Red Triangles located in some cells? These Red Triangles are comment prompts or explanations for that particular cell. By putting your mouse pointer over the Red Triangle, a small pop up will display containing this helpful information.
