I purchased this but now it's asking me for the password for the "write access" or I can only open it in Read Only form.

It is always suggested that you open the file as read only. Then after adding your content save it using a new name. This way you will always have the original file. If you do wish to make changes to the original file, once opening as read only you will find the password in the instructions.

Can this game work on a smartboard

I have not had too much experience with a Smartboard. I did use an ActivBoard in my class. The game uses Excel but of course would be projected on the Smartboard or ActivBoard. If I remember correctly, I could use the ActivPen to select the buttons at the board. However, I always found it better to have a student run the game from the computer rather than at the board. It should be easy for you to test. Download the sample copy of the game or the free Name Picker and try it. I'm retired, so I no longer have an easy way to test it myself. But I will contact a colleague and ask them to do a test. I hope this helps, if not contact me at dpinkley@gmail.com for further assistance.

If your problem is with downloading the file, you may need to get assistance from TPT. If you are having a problem opening the file I should be able to help. The typical problem is dealing with the security settings on your PC which may or may not allow the file to open because it contains macros. If you will tell me what version of windows and what version of Office you are using I can provide instructions for opening the file. Thanks for purchasing one of my products.

HI
The files opens requiring a password. Can you provide me with it.
This is the second time I have purchased this and I hope it works this time.

Dennis Pinkley  (TpT Seller)
The file has been saved as Read Only. This means that if you want to make changes you need to enter the password. This assures that you will always have a copy of the original program. Here is what you need to do. Click the Read Only button and the file will open. even though it is opened as Read Only you will still be able to make changes but will then have to Save As giving it a new name. This will save it with your content using a name that is meaningful to you. Once you open the file you will find an instruction page that will give more info on making changes and Saving the file. It will also tell you the password for opening the file allowing changes.

The other problem that you may experience deals with Security. The program contains a macro and it may not work depending on your security setting and th eversionof Excel being used. Here is how to resolve a security issue.

If you are using Excel 2003 do the following: 1. open Excel, 2. Choose Tools, Options, Security tab, Macro Security, Medium, Ok, OK. Now close Excel then reopen Excel and the file. When you open the file you should get a screen that asks if you want to enable macros. Select the center button which is "Enable." The program should now work. You will only have to change to Medium security this one time and it will stay at this setting unless you are on a school system that controls and resets security levels.

If using Excel 2007, when you open the file there will be a button near the top of the screen that says Options... Click this button then select "Enable this content." You will have to do this each time that you open the program.

Please email me at dpinkley@gmail.com to let me know if this worked okay for you. Thank you for purchasing one of my products.

I'm guessing that you are using Office 2003 or earlier. To resolve the security issue: 1. open Excel, 2. Choose Tools, Options, Security tab, Macro Security, Medium, Ok, OK.

Dear Dennis,

My name is Jack Dennison. I am the Editor-in-Chief of www.FunnelBrain.com, an educational website. I am writing to you because the quality of the work you have posted to PTP distinguishes you as a talented author. I am looking for teacher-authors to create custom study review materials for FunnelBrain (on a paid basis, of course).

These study materials would take the form of online flashcards, quizzes, and study guides for high school and college level courses, as well as for certain standardized exams such as the GMAT, the SAT or the GRE. We are also interested in lesson plans built around activities that can take place on www.FunnelBrain.com.

If you are interested in a paid writing assignment, please email me at jack@funnelbrain.com, and I will respond with details on the available assignments. In the meantime, please feel free to browse FunnelBrain.com.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
Jack Dennison

Hello- I'm looking for a program that will help me put together 8 softball teams from a pool of about 100 girls. The issue is that each girl is allowed to select another girl (or girls) to be on same team with- Do you have anything that will allow me to do that and take all requests into account?

I just came across your product. It looks interesting. I downloaded the preview and had difficulty getting it to work. I am using a MacBook with Microsoft 2008 installed. Am I out of luck or am I just doing something wrong?

I'm not sure. I've never tried it on a Mac. Do you have to do any thing to allow macros to run? In Office 07 you have to click Options then select enable this content. In older versions the macro security has to be lowered to medium. I will try it on a Mac here and see what I can figure out. I'm not sure if I can send a second reply through TPT, but if you will email me at dpinkley@gmail.com I will get back to you. Thanks for you interest in this product.

Buyer re: Bonus Bucks - Classroom License A Pinkley Product
Hello, I am inquiring about the Bonus Bucks. I downloaded the trial version of this program....look's great. I only want to know if there is a way to change the "buck" values if I buy the program? I am not sure that I want to use such high values. Thank you.

Dennis Pinkley  (TpT Seller)
Yes it is fairly easy to change the values. Select the tab with the values and unprotect it from the Tools menu. Then use the Replace command from the Edit menu. This will take care of the numbers that are in cells. The ones in the circles will have to be changed individually. Simply click on the number, delete the old number and enter the new number, then click some place else (do not just hit Enter). If you have any problems send me an email and I'll make the changes for you. If you wish you may also send pictures if you want to replace my dog's pictures. If you start using the Bonus Bucks, your students will also enjoy the Balloon Popper program. It's very easy to change the values in this program.
Have fun with these and remember that help is always just an email away. Thanks for your business. D Pinkley

Sorry that I have taken so long to get back to you, I just returned from vacation today.

When you opened the program with your security set at high it disabled the macro. Now that you have reset the security to medium, when you open a spreadsheet that has macros you should get a message that tells you that it includes macros and gives you the option to disable or enable the macros. Click the "enable" button (it will be the middle button). The macro should now work.

Email me at dpinkley@gmail.com to let me know whether or not this helped. If necessary, I could probably walk you through it over the phone.

I can't get the name picker to run. This macro thing is very confusing. I like the sound of many of your ideas but if I can't get the free one to run then I can't purchase the others. Can you make this any easier? I went to tools, then macros and set it to medium. Now what? Thanks for any help.
