Excel/9 Box Tool - Multiple Entries in each box


Hi Jerry,

I saw the 9 box tool you created called 9x9.xls through this link:

This is just what I am looking for, except that the boxes only allow for 4 or 5 entries to be displayed, and I would like to be able to have many more entries in each box (approximately 30). Is there a way that more entries can be displayed in each of the nine boxes?


Absolutely.  Each of the individual boxes has it's own formula in it.  Just insert the extra rows you want to make it 30 cells tall.  Then copy the last formula cell down the rest of the way within each of the grids.  Be sure not get the formulas mixed up, only copy within the individual grids as you add more rows.  It should work fine.
