When I run it, I get an error, saying that a file is missing. Thanks for your effort, and I look forward to seeing a working version.Andrew

Absolutely fantastic work!Did you all make sure to put the data files (*.dat) in the same folder as the .xls file? The Excel file needs to reference them in order to operate correctly.

congratulations!! this is really amazing and a great tool!my only remark i have so far is that the program doesn't work correctly when the decimalsign in windows is set to , instead of . It might be different on the 747 but it is my understanding that assumed temps below ISA+15 have no effect at all and therefore should not be used .. on the perfomance date i have for the 737-400 you can calculate max assumed and minimum assumed temps, i suppose this exists for the 747 as well??anyhow, it's a great utility that from now on will be mandatory for my preflight of the 747!great job!Jan

I played around with the decimal problem and it (hopefully) should be solved in 0.93b now.For the derated tempertures: The minimum derate temperature is +16
