I have an excel (v2003) worksheet with 4 sheets. One sheet is very intensive on comments (about 150 to 200 comments with formatting). I have also heard of similar problems happening in newer version of excel. Also I have saved several version of this document (about 10 saves, such that I am working with the new save as file so making 'corruption' easier to happen).
I have noticed comments become uneditable and they delete themselves from time to time. Is there a solution with Max to make a simple version of excel? I am looking for a table of contents (I use linked cells that are always in view to jump up and down a very long sheet). Also for it to function as some very basic math (+ * / and ( ) as operators). I use the comments to have rollover effect that show more text and thus I can have them any height and dont mind so much (comments being about 100 px high). Colouring and general formatting of cells and text in the cells are a must.
Is this something in max that would be pushing the programming language too much to reconstruct a basic excel program? This project would be geared to stats and display of the stats, I do not care so much how print friendly it would be.
