Re-uploaded to fix incorrectly-sized cells from the Google Drive export (causing a bunch of text to be hidden). I also removed the extraneous named ranges that were part of the deleted Vex/WCP sheets, and fixed the Motors/Specs ranges so that there wasn’t a bunch of extra blank entries in the dropdown list.

I get an error indicating either the page is not found or private, when I click on the calculator link above. How do I get access to the jvn for FTC calculator. I am coach trying to help my team figure out a way to calculate a better gear ratio for their landing mechanism with linear screw.
