In the spread sheet, what is FC%. Is it material passing through No 4 sieve or fines passing through No 200 sieve

The iterative and circular reference has to be done by each user as follows:
On Excel 2007
On the Formulas tab, in the Formula Auditing group, click the arrow on the Error Checking in-group button, point to Circular References, and then click the first cell listed in the submenu.

On Excel 2010
Make a circular reference work by changing the number of times Microsoft Excel iterates formulas
On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Calculation tab.
Select the Iteration check box.
To set the maximum number of times Microsoft Excel will recalculate, type the number of iterations in the Maximum iterations box. The higher the number of iterations, the more time Excel needs to calculate a worksheet.
To set the maximum amount of change you will accept between calculation results, type the amount in the Maximum change box. The smaller the number, the more accurate the result and the more time Excel needs to calculate a worksheet.

I'm familiar with this spreadsheet from the Monograph.

I would suggest just enabling iterative calculation; in the formulas tab and it will work fine.
