    :) Marc, that calculator works great! Thanks for taking the time to develop it. I am not totally 'Math Deprived', but it sure saves some time. Also, to use it as a 'sod calculator', just type in 36 in the inches data block, it gives you the total square yards of sod needed. :angel:

    I love it! That's very cool. I can usually estimate stuff like this pretty dang good just by sight. But this will come in handy from time to time I am sure. I wish there was a way to take it with me! (I don't have a laptop).

    Wouldn't let me view it either.

    Instead of trying to work all the figures out in my head or paper, I bought a construction calculater( that ables me to convert my measrements to sq ft, than again to sq yds and tells me how much cu. yds I will need for that particular application. It's a great little tool.

    MicroSoft Excell or MS Works spread sheet needed to work with the file. Sorry I should have put that in the first post.

    You will need Microsoft Excell or MS works Spread sheet.

    Now you can caculate how many bags you need. Also it will figure circles. I hope I got the math right?
