    Hi Guys,

    I could really do with your help trying to find out why one of my customers works files have suddenley increased by 10x they are just simple spreadsheets with golf details on them.

    I have attached both the files, they both appear to be the same asnd the data hasn't gone up dramatically, one for the year 03 is 42k but the one for 04 is 420k ish???

    I am clueless on works :(

    Many Thanks for your help. :)

    It looks to me like something fell on the space bar for about a half hour.

    spaces are data

    The one from '03 has name, 1-18 then total but the one from '04 has name, Normal H'cap, 1-18, Gross Score, half H'cap, Nett Score.

    Looks like it has more data. :)
