FireCalc & TIPS + old CRSP data + minor bug

I see FireCalc use to support TIPS for bonds, but it appears to have been removed. Anyone know why?

Just FYI, I noticed FireCalc uses Shiller's latest data (i.e. up though 2009) but the CRSP data it uses for "Mixed Portfolio" calculations appears to be only up to 2004.

Last, there appears to be a minor bug when the Investigate tab is used to create two spreadsheets showing the data and formulas. The problem only shows up for mixed portfolios (the default total market portfolio spreadsheets look correct). For the second spreadsheet, which shows a single year in detail, the lower data calculated from the spreadsheet formulas do not match the upper data calculated by FireCalc. The FireCalc data is correct, so the spreadsheet formulas must have a problem.
