Hey everyone,

I'm back with another strange question.

I seem to recall, but my memory is foggy, about someone posting an excel spreadsheet to help with Time on Target calculations. Does my memory fail me on this, and if not, does anyone remember where it was posted so I can find it?

I tried using the forums search feature using the phrase "time on target" and didn't have much luck.

Thanks everyone!

Hi Scott,

Here are the spreadsheets that I have. Both are from 2016 with Databases CWDB443 and DB3K444.

Good afternoon Wayne,

I've downloaded the TOT strike planner but I have some questions about using it now that I've had time to open the spreadsheets up and start to play around with them

1) what format is the location entered in, in that particular cell of the spreadsheet?

2) I am not seeing a location for the desired target of the spreadsheet either, now maybe I am just overlooking it.

3) cruise missiles - how do you enter waypoints and speed when calculating those into the planner. I know you can plot waypoints in CMO for the launch of those, but how do you know what that data is to enter into the planner?

This might be a conversation best done in PM??? or maybe doing so on this thread so others can learn from my own um....experiences, might be the best way.

I appreciate any answers and help that you can provide as I try and take advantage of this tool

Thanks,

Scott

Hi Scott.

Unfortunately, I have to admit my ignorance here. I captured these spreadsheets when they were put on the forum but have never actually tinkered with them myself. I had intended to do so but other things kept bumping them down on my list of things to do.

So, all I can recommend is for you to do as I would have - play around with them and see what results you achieve. You can also modify things as you see fit to see how/what happens. As this is a public discussion perhaps another forum member can provide details on using the spread sheets.

I appreciate the candor and hopefully someone will be scrolling past this particular post and maybe can help resolve some of the questions, if not, I guess I'll just play around and see what I can come up with.

Still, greatly appreciate your taking the time to respond as well as providing me with the link to get the spreadsheets in the first place.

Happy Hunting Wayne!
