The spreadsheets mimic the functionality of the BC Ministry of Forests SiteTools
package. There are two versions:
Instructions are included in the first spreadsheet page.
- With macros. Contains user
defined functions, requiring a medium security setting and accepting to
enable macros. Recommended if you have administrator permissions
for this. The user defined functions are available for use
in other applications.
- No macros. No security
requirements. Use this if you are not allowed to run unsigned
macros. Because of tricky iteration programming this version may
be somewhat less robust, it fails to compute some extreme entries, and
there are minor cosmetic issues.
The software runs with Microsoft Excel 2000 or higher, and
with recent versions of LibreOffice or OpenOffice. The user defined
functions appear under the category "SiteSheets" in Excel 2010, under
Defined" in older Excel versions, and are not listed but available in
