You need the analysis tool pack installed and, if printed out,
they'll need to have the page setup adjusted and probably some of
the columns will need adjusting.There's also the odd mistake...
nobody's perfect!"(To

Tables
tests
Corrected 12/3/06 
This is an MS Excel
workbook that generates tables "squares" for the children to
complete. Each square has nine rows (210). The 3 different sheets
have 4, 5 and 9 columns. It also generates answer sheets (to save
you time). I use them as weekly tables tests ("How many can you get
right in 5 minutes?").
The sheet uses a macro to
jumble up the row and column headings so you will need to set your
Macro Security Level to medium before loading the spreadsheet).
