thanks for the reply
looking fwd to get my hands on the completed xls file

I was looking forward for a way to include the "question" That i tried in the excel file ... as no way to do in excel i tried using the google doc in the following way ...

I found a bug ... may be Excel bug or google doc ... I try to maintain a online google doc of all the WRONG ques .. in the excel file when i insert a hyperlink like "http://docs.google.com/Doc?docid=0ZGQ3MzNoem5f4Y3NyN2hqZng&hl=en#Ques_3" then ideally on clicking this link i should see the ques but i see the index in browser ... BUT the URL in the browser doesnt include the #Ques_3 is sth like "http://docs.google.com/Doc?docid=0ZGQ3MzNoem5f4Y3NyN2hqZng&hl=en"

It seems like a bug in MS excel ... not sure ... may be others can try similar thing and confirm

let me knwo if i need to explain more

Oh , now I got your point:

I tested the link you sent me.

I tried the one below (#p660667): I copied it in excel and it's working fine. So it's not the problem of excel.
competition-for-the-best-gmat-error-log-template-86232-60.html#p660667

I think it's problem with your link,

Thanks for your comments,

I hope I will continue to help GMATclub members in future, lack of time doesn't allow to do many things at the same time.

Thanks again.

Seriously, the error log forum is great. People often think that practice makes perfect. However, as an athlete, I was taught that perfect practice makes perfect and I definitely see the relevance/applicability to my GMAT prep. The error log is a tool for helping you achieve perfect practice.

Give me some time I will write the consolidated changes in the post.

e.g. there was mistake in table of report page, there were the % of questions solved of particular type not the accuracy : so if you solved 10 questions of type "Assumption" and you missed all, so the accuracy should be 0% not the 100%.

I am editing the excel formulas again, give me some time.

Hi, it was clear. I understood what you want.
i am using spoilt error log v0.0.7 in my signature.
I use the notes field for this purpose. I write the question number in notes field. Add a auto filter in excel using DATA-FILTER-AUTO FILTER.
so we have source field . type field . Correct field. And number of question in notes field. Using filter i can easily filter it.
Try it it's easy.
please don't hesitate if you need more help. Sorry using my mobile otherwise i would have attached snapshot.

Hey Spoilt, this is awesome error-log! I'm using your v0.07 for your GMAT study.

I was wondering if you can integrate in an auto stopwatch function inside your sheet, so in that way users can have a better understanding on what types of questions he/she needs to really practice from a timing strategy perspective.

I attached an old error-log I downloaded long time ago from GMAT Club. It has the auto stopwatch function.

Yes sure why not. For the moment you can use GMATtimer by sir Walker - It's a very useful tool. I will check the source code in the attached excel and update log ASAP.

I am really glad to know that my error logs are useful to many GMAT club members for their preparation.

Please feel free to provide your valuable feedbacks and suggestions.
