I don't have Winzip on my computer, how can I open the e-book
You don't any special software to open the e-books, they are supplied in Self Extracting Zip files which means they contain everything needed to unzip themselves. Just double click the downloaded .exe files, then Click Unzip to extract the contents into the specified location.
The book displays blanks and black boxes and gives error messages when I open it
You must use Acrobat Reader version 4 or later to open the Property Secrets e-books.
Check which version you have by opening the book within Acrobat Reader, then click Help > About Acrobat Reader.
I'd like a printed book because I prefer to read it that way
Some Property Secrets books are available in hardcopy format, please see the individual book pages under the 'Shop' drop down menu above for more details
I cannot open any of the spreadsheets
Spreadsheets are designed to be opened in a spreadsheet application such as Microsoft Excel and not in Acrobat Reader like the e-books.
The spreadsheets are supplied in a variety of formats for different applications. You can either open them directly from the active links in the e-books, or directly in your choice of spreadsheet program.
I cannot edit a spreadsheet, I am told the chart is protected and read-only
Only certain fields or cells in the spreadsheets are allowed to be edited.
The cells which can be edited are clearly marked and have a explanation of the value that should be entered
Some of the cells contain #VALUE, what does that mean?
Many of the numbers in the spreadsheet are automatically calculated from the figures you enter. If you type an invalid entry, such as letters instead of numbers, then the figures cannot be worked out
Go back and check over the figures you have entered to see which one is wrong
