Hmmm, that might work.
Some brave soul click the link in the second try above.  See if you get an excel spread sheet to download that you can "edit" and it functions, i.e. not just an image of a spread sheet.

Oh, play with number in the green boxes, no the red.  Green is input, red is calculated results.

Well, worked for me.. kinda.
I was able to get to a spread sheet, but when I tried to edit a "green" number I got a "protected" message.  I just clicked "enable editing" and then was able to play with it.  
However, I have the original on my computer, so I still need a volunteer to see if anyone else can get to it.

I just tried it after enabling and renaming. The green entries work.

Question: Is this for you or were you thinking for the Forum? I have a couple of comments but I hate to dash your hours of work regarding the compost part.

Was thinking for the forum, but it's a work in progress.
Started with just the simple volume calculations based on bed sizes, then started adding some other stuff I typically use.
Input welcome.  
I was just trying to see if it was possible to share on forum before I put anymore time into it.

Thanks

It worked for me. I was a bit dismayed b/c I might need more compost based on the calculator. I loved the number of 5 gal. buckets feature for Mel's Mix.
