My domestic partner has been using
Version 1.01 of Ed's NFL Office Pool Calculator at her office and it
really rocks!!! It is quite robust and a job you should feel proud
of. Kudos - a very nice programming job and thank for sharing.
Another nice update, Ed, to your NFL Office Pool calculator! Much appreciated. - chickenman
I can't believe how much work you put into this!! Wow!! I am just blown away. I had a question but your sheet answered it for me. - Troy
I downloaded your NFL Office Pool Calculator spreadsheet last night and played with it for awhile. Impressive work. It is almost perfect for my group, except it doesn't support confidence points. Have anyone ever tried to incorporate confidence points into your calculator? - Scott Johnson
It looks like you've done an amazing job. I clicked the Download NFL Winners button and like magic, the score of the Denver game appeared and the players who picked Denver had green picks. Awesome!
I just wanted to let you know that I had a great time using your calculator on Sunday. I had it open during the games and kept updating it as the games progressed. Watching the standings change with each score was a lot of fun. By the way, I gave your website info to my son who is teaching in Saudi Arabia in an International School there. Most of the teachers are from the US and Canada. He downloaded it and now there are about 10 teachers using your calculator for their Pick’em in Saudi on a weekly basis. Seems like you’ve truly gone "International." - Steve Smith
Ed - I just wanted to say thank you for your efforts in putting together your football pool calculator. Where I work we have at least 20 people a week that get into the weekly Pick 'Em and your spreadsheet makes it so easy, Thank you again for your time and effort that you put into it! - Dan Felock
Ed - The problem I originally mentioned was all mine. I run a little pool in the office and therefore keep the workbook on my desktop. However, we have a fairly robust firewall that blocks this feature. I sent a copy home and ran it on our laptop at home and it worked fantastically!!!
I absolutely love this NFL Pool Calculator, and, being a reasonably competent Excel user, I respect your design. I thank you for your help and wish you continued success! - John Finney
First off, I must say your football excel document is quite impressive! - Chris Redmond
Great program! Really well done. - Keith Hamada
You are a genius in our time. - Matthew Rose
Great! Thanks tons! Awesome work on this. We’ll be using it in Lakeway (Austin), TX all year now! - Michael Nelson
First off I just want to say THANK YOU!
I am in a pool with 25 people and the person who runs it uses a basic Excel spreadsheet and I was trying to keep track of how I was doing last week and it was driving me nuts. I was going to try to create something but I thought that someone out there must have done this before, and sure enough you did. And it is way beyond anything I would have been able to whip up, that's for sure! So thank you for creating what (after hours of Googling) I have determined is the best damn football pool calculator out there. - Rich Neves
I've been using your awesome spreadsheet and I really like it. Thanks for sharing. - Julie Henderson

Ed - Very, very nice job! - Chuck (San Diego)
Your program is the best thing out there. It has saved me a ton of time. Now only if I can get everyone involved in the pool to turn in there sheets on time. Haha. If you take donations I'm willing to give. Thanks for your time. - Michael Daley
Thank you for the great job on the NFL pool calculator. - Dale Domshy
I just gotta say, "Thanks again!" It works great! - Keith Baggett
I've been checking out your Excel NFL Pool Calculator and I must say it is amazing! I've ran an office pools for years and did everything manually! Our pool gets rather large sometime and I needed to find a solution. I found one I love.... yours! - John Slama
Fantastic Calculator! - Adam M. Lenke
I really enjoy using your program. It is actually really fun watching other people become eliminated after each game ends. Thanks for all of the time and hard work you have put into the program. - Cody Williams
Great job with this program. I've been telling all my friends about it. - Robert Kam
I just found your spreadsheet. It is terrific. - Paul Galvin
Why did you change the title of this website? It used to be called the "World's Greatest NFL Office Pool Calculator!" As far as I'm concerned, it still is! - James D.
Hmmmm, where to begin? How about, "Thanks?" You did a very nice job with your spreadsheet. I really liked the layout of the main page, and I was thrilled with the "download scores" button. It's obvious you put a lot of time and effort into developing it. And you went the extra mile to not only make it look nice, but to make it easy for the user to actually ... well, "use."
And thanks for indirectly inspiring me to dip a toe back into the programming waters. Once upon a time, I was a programmer. Now, I am not. I haven't been for a long time, and I've missed it so much. I've been running an office pool for a number of years, and it's been a major PITA. I put together a spreadsheet that took care of quite a few of the details, but there was still too much manual work that had to be done. I was about ready to hand it all off to someone else. Seeing what you did with VBA convinced me to put together an automated pool manager. I've really enjoyed myself.
I really appreciate that you did such fine work and were willing to share it with the world. Thank you. - Al Robinson
Let me start off by saying I really appreciate your work involving the NFL calculator. It is really a generous thing for you to do with your spare time. - Saul Herrera
Really appreciate all of your work and the awesome pool spreadsheet. I used it for the first time last year and really enjoyed working with it. - Phillip Lewis
I love the program. THANKS. One question... does it add the total points from both Monday Night games for tie-breaker? - Jeff Blakemore
Thanks for your football spreadsheet.. I used it last year. - Craig Anderson
Thank you for the great spreadsheet for the upcoming NFL season! - Whitney Merrill
This is our second year using your office pool spreadsheet. We really appreciate your efforts and we love the program! - Briton Tunseeprasert
Hi Edward. I am sending you a donation towards Ed's NFL Office Pool Calculator. It is a brilliantly complex but yet simple to use piece of work that I am using for the second year. Thanks for not locking it and having it as Shareware. It's one of the reasons I am sending this donation. Many thanks for an excellent program. - Paul Wright
You have been WONDERFUL!! This truly has been a lifesaver for me. I have between 75 and 100 participants and I used to do it all by hand- checking books, keeping tallies. It took me hours! I appreciate you!! - Melva Newbrough
This is our fourth year using the workbook. It's great. The workbook makes running our football pool so much easier and more enjoyable. - Cheryl Lee & Chris Jackson
Thanks again for all your hard work and dedication. - Fred Partridge
Thanks, Ed. Love your spreadsheet! - David Wilson
"This calculator is the bomb ever since I found it a few years ago.
Prior to this, I had my own pool using my own efforts to input the data, CORRECTLY, and obtain the results, CORRECTLY. As you must know, transcribing the player's picks, then the winners of everyone is simple yet needs to be 100% accurate. Though I loved people enjoying the pool, it was daunting every year. I contemplated not doing it after 12 or 13 years of running one. Then I found your calculator and I loved it!
Now, there are still some headaches, but none having to do with the calculator. Now it is just the normal problems. (Players getting their picks turned in on time, and completely, or fees paid and keeping track of who owes and who's paid in advance. And entering those picks from players who only turn the sheet in a hardcopy, or via text with just the winners, or use a different sheet that doesn't input.)
So, with all that said, THANK YOU for your hard work to create this EXCELLENT calculator. - Gilbert Casillas
Thank you so much for creating the spreadsheet! - Javier Perez
Thanks for the great and expedient work you have done on your program. - JC Willette
Amazing tool, much better than what I was going to build, good thing I stopped to search for a tool! Is it possible to make it download scores from previous weeks, I've been keeping track via my own spreadsheet and want to roll over to yours, and while I could manually enter the winners that is a lot more work than downloading scores. - Jeff Davis
We have a family football pool and I have been creating spreadsheets
with minimal Excel functionality and lots of manual entry, and lots
of errors as I manually tally winners and losers. Your spreadsheet
is a light years advancement for me. Although we don’t have need for
some of the sophisticated functions like who is alive and the cross
reference chart, just knowing they are there may create interest in
various pool members seeing them.
