A Gift of Tick Marks

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q. I enjoyed Mark Lehman’s article “Make Your Mark in Spreadsheets” ( JofA , Jan.01, page 29) . Is there some way I can copy the tick marks he created? And how can I share them with my colleagues?

A. Mark Lehman is generously making available a file containing his favorite tick marks. You can download them from www.cbi.msstate.edu/cobi/sac/tickmarks.html and follow the instructions provided.
