File Sharing

  • ShipCalc2010 workbooks can be opened and used by any computer with a valid ShipCalc2010 license.

With access to the web, users can open free cloud storage accounts from vendors such as Microsoft and Google, and email links with download instructions to colleagues and clients, without the size restrictions.
  • The performance of ShipCalc2010 is most influenced by the computer’s RAM, and internal cache memory.
  • The larger the RAM storage the better the performance. A ShipCalc2010 report workbook is about 10 KB, or about the size of two open IE Explorer windows. A summary workbook is about 5 KB.
  • User customized workbooks will consume more RAM as charts, data and dashboards are created. Keep in mind the performance of the workbook is most effected by the number of charts not the number of data cells.
  • The user can control performance by customizing workbooks that contain more charts, for reporting, and less charts for financial auditing.
  • In each case adding more RAM will increase the performance regardless of the file size.ShipCalc2010 workbook security and protection.
