FIRECalc calculations for 2008 and 2009

When running FIRECalc it is my understanding that the main results page currently computes data through 2009, right? How about the spreadsheets generated from the Investigate tab? For example, if using 1969 as starting retirement date, do the spreadsheets then show for the 1969 row results through 2008, and 1970 through 2009?

Where are the five replies you mentioned? I looked in the FIRECalc Support forum but could not find any replies.

Sorry. Another of my failed attempts at humor. (This is Post #7)

I'm not sure that this is an answer, but...

I seem to recall that the spreadsheets are only valid for a 30 year portfolio. So if you start at 1969, you need to choose 30 years and 1969+30 = 1999.

But the ss output confuses me, so take that with a grain of salt.
