A Spreadsheet version is available for Transcribing  as well as Incens, XP users please note you will have to use this as InCens will not operate under XP.

If you are OK with INCENS then stick with it......

If you have problems with Incens,  or you update your PC to WINDOWS XP please let me know and I will arrange the conversion of your INCENS file  into the Spreadsheet version. 

There is also a Spreadsheet help line on
If you are new to,  or unsure of how to use spreadsheets in Transcribing, then subscribe yourself to this site.
