I think there is a style problem in the article. Simba's backtesting spreadsheet is linked in three places, once under backtesting, then as a reference and finally in the See also section. Generally articles are linked only once, would suggest the proper place is under Simba (1972-2013). --Peculiar Investor 21:25, 20 February 2014 (CST)

Reader feedback: The VPW spreadsheet download... posted this comment on 22 September 2015 (view all feedback).

The VPW spreadsheet downloaded from Google drive does not work in all versions of Excel... it will not load, for example, into Office Excel for iPad (v1.13) [running under iOS 8.4.1 on iPad Air 2]. However, it does function reasonably well using Apple's spreadsheet Numbers (v2.5.5) on the iPad. I downloaded several other spreadsheets (Calc XL, iSpreadsheet) to try but none of them retained what appears to be named ranges and other features, so dead in the water. Bottom Line: MS Excel on iPad (NO), Apple Numbers (YES--the charts weren't pretty). - digarei 9/21/2015
