How do i activate a spreadsheet
can i run these spreadsheets on mac
Single-user licensed spreadsheet are incompatible with Mac as Apple doesn't support ActiveX components which are advanced macros used in the spreadsheet activation process.
Most of the company licensed spreadsheets are compatible with Mac (the spreadsheets don't have to be activated and so don't use Apple unsupported ActiveX components). Check the system requirement section for each spreadsheet to make sure it was developed for Mac.
Can i run these spreadsheet on libre office
Libre Office isn't supported. However, it most of the company licensed spreadsheets will work fine. If you would like to take the risk then start with checking whether the Free Lite Version works, if it does work fine then so should a company license.
Note that the single-user licensed spreadsheets will not work on Libre Office as the macros used in the activation process are not supported.
how do i use these spreadsheets
The spreadsheets are design to be self-explanatory, with some additional help for more complex terms - these have a question mark sign '?' that will bring up an explanation.
All cells with content written in bold blue text are editable.
Can i transfer a license to a different computer
If you purchased a single-user license then this allows you to activate the spreadsheet on one computer only. Therefore make sure that during activation process you run it on the computer you want to use the spreadsheet on.
It isn't possible to deactivate a license on one computer to transfer it to another computer. These are only Excel spreadsheets after all. These don't connect to internet to check licensing status.
To avoid being locked to one computer only you may want to consider purchasing a company license instead. This allows you to use the spreadsheet on unlimited number of computers as it doesn't require activation. You will have to provide a company address and this information will be locked into the spreadsheet header (the spreadsheet header can be arranged as you like, with your logo, name etc).
What is the difference between single-user and company license
A single-user license is locked to one computer and allows you to use the spreadsheet on that computer only. A company license allows you to use a spreadsheet on an unlimited number of computers and doesn't require activation which makes the whole process a lot simpler and faster. A quick comparison of the benefits can be found here: Single-user vs Company license.
I am a chartered structural and civil engineer with many years of design and project management experience. Hope you like my spreadsheets and find these useful during everyday tasks.
