|We have been talking to a number of site users recently and it seems that there are a number of common misconceptions about the ExcelCalcs Site. So let's try to put them to bed once and for all.|
| Common Misconception
||The Truth||Why XLC Pro?
|I can only use the free XLC trial subscription for 30 days.||You can re-subscribe to our free XLC trial subscription as many times as you like. XLC will continue to work in the trial mode.||Only XLC Pro subscribers have no restricted functionality.|
|I can only send my XLC calculation to other users with XLC.||XLC allows you to save your work as a native Excel file and you can send this work to anyone you like.||Only XLC Pro subscribers can save in native Excel format.|
|I can only install XLC on one machine.||Install it on as many machines as you like provided it is for your use only.||Only XLC Pro subscribers are licensed to run the software for commercal use.|
|I can’t use Repository files when my subscription expires.||Repository downloads are simply excel files with no timeout features.||We log all your downloads and we’ll tell you if you have the latest version.|
|I will be locked into an annual payment.||You can change to our free XLC trial subscription at any time or you can contribute for a free XLC Pro subscription.||We need your support as contributors as much as your financial support.|
|I must submit calculations using XLC and the XLC template.||We don’t mean to be prescriptive just follow our good calculation guide as far as practical but many repository calculations depart from it.||Only XLC Pro subscribers can download from the repository.|
