I can also tell you that many Tau generals who I know use your masterpiece - only they do not visit ATT to thank you for it. So let me pass on their appreciation too! Don't abandon the project, for it is unique and brilliant!

Weeeell....... you are the experts here! :D
If you say nothing is wrong with Eal'ta for 5th edition as it is now, who am I to disagree?

Actually, as I just released the PDF I was working on and will have less occupation in that direction (for at least a week or two), I might as well look at Eal'ta again and shorten the To-Do list... we shal's'la see ;)

(and when a new Codex is out... I hope they don't mess up greatly there!)

That's absolutely great!

I wonder if it wouldn't be much trouble to take a look at compatibility with Neo Office and other Open Office clones? Those have grown quite better recently and I often see similar spreadsheets for other gaming systems come now both in MS and Open Office variants. I hope it means macro conversion isn't hard to do anymore... and it would help greatly all the non-windows users.

Thanks in advance!

You are welcome ;)

Depends... the biggest problem with OpenOffice was that no lists could be generated with conditions (say if I choose THIS on cell A3 then populate this list, if this, then populate another list). And the second biggest problem would be that if the syntax of the OO macro language is not 100% the same as in Excel (2003), EVERYTHING would have to be manually updated and bugtracking would be a great deal of a job...

I will have a look at OO too when I have time for it ;)

Well, I just wanted to say that I still use this and wish I had one like it for all my armies! Please keep working on it and updating it. I will be very sad when the new codex comes out if I can no longer use the spreadsheet.
There is no prize that exceeds the worth of my honor.

I really enjoy this creation of yours Joe. I have downloaded it and actually created a 4,000 pt army just to see what its like.

I had one thing come up with a group of kroot. It said the value for the number of kroot and kroot hounds was illegal even though it was within the allowed number range. Probably something on my end though.

I'll let you know if it ever gives me a hard time.

Since I have used this thing more times than I can count, I figured I should sing praises to this program as well. I absolutely love it. Great job!
