Hi Brew, <br>
 type="cite"><font size="2">I am looking for suggestions on speeding up
he spreadsheet calculations for my courses. Currently, each student
takes 25-30 seconds to calculate, so a class of 20 students takes 10
minutes or more to calculate. This seems a little excessive...:)<br>
<font size="2">There are some minor changes </font><font size="2">LON-CAPA
2.3 </font><font size="2">to speed up the spreadsheet.&nbsp; The
spreadsheet accesses so much data for each problem for each student
that it takes a long time.&nbsp; Not that you want to hear this, but 10
minutes is considerably faster than what it used to take a few versions
ago.&nbsp; <br>
