I made this excel sheet one day during architecture class, has served me well ever since. It calculates riser heights for stairs, and optimum tread depth.

Fairly easy to use. Everything is in inches. It will find solutions that are in 1/8" increments for easy measuring on site. All the solutions it finds will add up to the floor to floor height. Was a joy to make, hopefully someone here will find this useful.

apparently you cannot attach excel sheets

You might be able to embed you excel spreadsheet into a non-compressed *.png file and post the pic and then a diligent observer could disentangle the pixels into the excel bytes. Just a thought.

Also some web sites allow temporary sharing of binaries but I don't know where off hand...

Also, you may utilize the utility called "uuencode" and post the alphanumerics for someone else to "uudecode".

It is a free software utility easily obtainable on the web.

Hi;

Hope your Mom does well.

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**
