Can’t say for sure what EG expects /wants

Last time I submitted an excel spreadsheet was 2017. A daunting task, especially items, as you know. Truly I submitted best guesstimates. That was sent to BFG. They restored items the same as I submitted.

I have not had my game restored as yet from the 2021 Level 111 list sent to EG, still waiting. I figure “no news is good news” . Once restored, I can better answer your questions.

And yes, I rounded up the quantity on all items in my list.

The excel list link is available to everyone in this forum. Chilpep and myself are here pretty much daily to assist if need be. So try the link and copy inventory items from there into your spreadsheet. I already spent the time required, no sense you and others should not benefit.

please let us know if the link downloads complete

Thanks for chiming in. I take it you downloaded the list complete?

Here’s hoping you do no need to use it.

see you round the castle

Thanks.  I am one of the lucky ones who's game has so far stayed ok.  However I have stopped most play out of fear it could happen and so the spreadsheet is a great safety net.  My computer is now over four years old too so its a good insurance for that.  I hope everything is restored soon.I lost my game a few years ago and finally EG restored a near copy for me.  It was a hideous time and I dont want that again and my great sympathies to those who are going thru it. x

I do not have Excel either because I also use Libre.  I clicked on the spreadsheet to open and Microsoft wanted to offer the 1-month free trial.  I chose to just look at the spreadsheet, then copy it (31 pages) by using the "SnipIt" method.  If you press Windows, Shift and S at the same time the screen will darken and you can draw a box around the area you wish to save.  I chose to save the first 4 columns I think.  Then I "saved" it as a download to a file called Midnight Castle.  It may not be the best or fastest way to do it, but that's what I did.  Goog luck!!

Hi LadyDiFL

Did you try the open source document that I added?  I'm curious to see it that works.  Thanks.

Many thanks to the datsalotta. My game is already restored, but I downloaded this doc just in case. I use OpenOffice, it opened this spreadsheet with no problem. I hope it will help.

Yes!! It gave me the choice to open with LibreCalc and the spreadsheet looked great.  I saved it in my MC file folder.  Thanks.  It worked great!!

What a time saver!  I currently do screenshots of everything on a weekly basis (including my entire 21+ pages of friends) and this will be so much easier to update when there is a major increase of inventory during the events.  I do play on an iPad (so knock on wood), I did not have the current lost game issue but I have had one in the past.

You are my hero!
