Inflation and Spreadsheet Results

I am a new user and am very impressed with the elegance and utility of FireCalc. Thank you Bill!

Perhaps as a new user I have missed something. I am puzzled by the spreadsheet output from FireCalc, and I would appreciate an explanation of what it appears that I am seeing.

The spreadsheet option on the INVESTIGATE page enables the user to "Open an unformatted Excel spreadsheet showing the inflation-adjusted end-of-year portfolio balances for every year in each of the cycles." However, the maximum and minimum spreadsheet end-of-cycle values are very different than those shown in the RESULTS page graphic. It appears that the spreadsheet values are NOT adjusted for inflation.

Help please!
