I don't mean to be rude or insinuate foul play, but excel spreadsheets may be able to compromise a computer with a virus or trojan. Linking directly (kinda) to potentially dangerous files is usually frowned upon.

I'm sure this file is clean, but I have not checked it. Next time, link to an intermediate page, provide a checksum, link through a trusted file portal (I'm not sure if mediafire provides virus scanning on upload), or provide some other proof or validity. Many established forum members will avoid downloading a potentially dangerous file from a relatively new member.

We appreciate your effort, but providing proof of validity and cleanliness will help you share your work with all.
