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!"

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).
