Found this cool GMAT practice grid that tracks your timing every time you fill in an answer. Very slick!

TestGrid with Timing...not working

by furelise37 » Fri Jan 04, 2008 11:35 am
I came across this TestGrid with Timing and it doesn't seem to work. I'd click on the "start" but the time doesn't start, the amount of time that's supposed to calculate for time spent on each question doesn't work either. I don't know what's not working or if I'm not using it right. Please help. Thanks.

Unfortunately I can't help troubleshoot because I didn't create this document. It sounds like an issue with either (1) your version of Excel, or (2) turning on Macros?

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Hi furelise37,
Go to the Excel Tools---->Macro--->Security.Set the Security level "Low".This will solve your problem.
Thanks,
Ajay

Issue with the Grid

by tparekh » Mon Aug 04, 2008 11:01 pm
Hello,

This is indeed a very helpful grid.

I was just having a small problem with the grid and was wondering if anyone else did too. If I put the number of questions > 41, it creates the sheet rows correctly, but, all rows after 41 look different/messed up and the timing calculation per row is incorrect too (only after 41).

Any fixes ? I tried looking at the macros, but couldn't figure out much.

Regardless, excellent grid, so thank you. :)

Is this compatible with MAC OS?
