Hello all. Being very fond on the HP-67/97, 41CX days, I still enjoy documenting my programs on coding sheets. So, has anyone designed a coding form (preferably in Microsoft Word 97-2000 (Win) or Microsoft Word (Mac) format? If so, could you let me know?

Thanks

I have a rough draft here. It's a compressed folder with Excel 2010 and PDF versions.

Even for a rough draft, it's pretty spiffy! Nice, indeed!

Can't wait to see the final version.

Thanks.

HI;

if I may add a suggestion, you could also add a custom finishing to the listings by using these fonts and display templates. Just to give you a 'sip' of how your listings may look like, please have a look at the following PDF docs:
NFV with the HP12C (in Portuguese),
how to use the program to compute Cash Flow with the HP48 (in Portuguese) and
how to use Iqbal's SUBDIV program to compute polygon areas (this usage guide and sample written by Iqbal Mohamed).

These are samples on how do the fonts look in final documentation. I'd guess they actually give the docs a final look closer to the calculator look itself.

Cheers.

Nice files. I have used Excel in the past years to code HP-35S programs. One can use macros that add the appropriate line numbers. For example when a line-numbering macro sees LBL D in the steps column, it determines that the label is D and therefore inserts a D001 line number in the step number column. It then continues to number subsequent steps with D002, D003, and so on, until it determines that it has reached a step that declares another label. This is just a very simple example of how macros can assist you in managing the listing of an HP-35S/33S program. You can make the macros more sophisticated to support automatic renumbering of programs.

You can have additional columns that comment what the variables store. You can effortlessly add comments in a specialized column next to the column containing the steps.

I have a program listing that I made and use in MS Word. It looks similar to the coding sheet that came with the 41C. If you would like a copy, send me an email and I will send it to you.

I recreated the HP Users' Library coding sheets in MS Word format. Send me an email via this site and I'll respond with the file.
