  10. 10. Data Presentation The spreadsheet that you just created is text-only. Do not copy and paste data from it to the master spreadsheet! If you want to print the spreadsheet, you should adjust the column widths as shown. In addition, you'll need to go to the Page Setup option under the File menu. Change the page orientation to landscape. Figure 20: EADDR Statistics, ready to go! 10

See Data Conversion on page 6 of this guide. Click End to return to the Data Prep form, fix the spreadsheet and try importing it again. Program Seems to quot;Freezequot; If the hourglass doesn't change after about ten seconds, then the program probably can't find a linked table. Press and hold the Ctrl key while pressing the Pause/Break key on the keyboard. You should get an error message. Click End to return to the Data Prep form. Go to the shared drive and make sure you can find CXCommon.mdb in the same directory as EADDR Stats Generator.mdb. If it is missing, copy it from your hard drive. Test the links by trying to open the FTax Manager form. If you get an error at this point, it will actually tell you where it was looking for the table. Otherwise, close the FTax form and import your Hyperion spreadsheet. Corp Stats Missing Assuming you have not disabled that corp's FTax group, the only other reason a corp would be missing is if it were not present in the Hyperion report! It's not necessary to redo all other corps. Use the output to update the statistics. Then start over from Data Source on page 1 of this Guide. This time, just select the missing corp(s). What's FTax Manager? This undocumented utility allows you to create, enable and disable groups of FTax areas within a single corp. If you take a peek inside, you'll see where it used to have smaller statistical groupings enabled. The utility has some instructions, just be careful! 11
