Frequently Asked Questions :
Please find below some questions frequently asked by users of the Excel Protocols :
Question 2 : I noticed some cells that should be editable have become protected by password and can no longer be edited. How do I handle this?
Question 3 : I am using v1.1 of the 2017 XLS Protocols in a Mac, and the hyperlinks to view the Standards do not work.
Question 4 : The Audit Summary box (and/or the Comments boxes by the end of each protocol chapter) do not display the entire text.
Question 5 : Excel is not a text editor and text inserted in various cells become too long and difficult to read.
Question 6 : The APM says auditors should give the operator the finding form and the audit report form by the end of the audit, but how can that be done if these forms are in the same file as the remaining protocols?
