    Entering Data:

    Enter numbers or text as appropriate in the blank spaces highlighted in yellow. All other cells are

    percentages, etc. as appropriate. Enter any number without commas or dollar signs. Enter

    separate sheet in the spreadsheet. The spreadsheet contains numerous error checks which are

    designed to assist you in identifying potential mistakes in your application. Please note that these may

    appear as you enter data because many are dependent on entries later in the application. Do not be

    numbers necessary to complete the application.
