Known Issues

Due to an inconsistency in the Microsoft Excel programming environment the above version of Lactate-E will not work with Dutch versions of Microsoft Excel. Try this version if you are running the Dutch version of Microsoft Excel.

There is also a problem with the Dmax method in certain situations. This has been resolved in version 2.0.
