Reply to "Excel Balancing File"

OK  folks     Here is the latest (hopefully last) revision

1. It fixes the bug with the Weight Splitting Sheet. It now references the proper user-input cells and adds more metric units in a few of the drop-down menus

2. It adds two new sheets, Basic Calculations and Severity Charts. I did not go into details on the Severity Charts. The user should be familiar with the contractual and technical requirements for your own balancing jobs.  I simply attached images for convenience, which I consider to be "fair use" of images normally found on the web

3. The latest file is macro-enabled which was needed to automate scaling for the 4-run balancing method.  Previous revisions required the user to manually adjust scaling of the X and Y axis parameters (i.e. min and max bounds) for some balancing examples. This can still be done but a macro was introduced to automate this process and ensure both the X and Y axis scales were identical. See the amplifying instructions on how to use.

Unless there are technical bugs to fix, I am done putting any more effort into this file. It should be sufficient for most common balance jobs and met my intent of having a one-stop shop.......more important things to start on    .  Feel free to edit and improve if any of you have some other ideas  

Stay safe and healthy out there while we get thru this rough patch of time
