I have been manually updating the Excel spreadsheets for my projects for years,
and this includes my Phillips project that has almost 500 participants. I have
been doing it manually because we also accept results from companies other than
FTDNA and it was too much trouble to have to re-add the results of 30 or 40
non-FTDNA tested participants every time we updated the spreadsheets downloaded
from FTDNA. Manually adding the results of one or two participants every week
or so is not that big of a deal. I am now really glad that I have updated
spreadsheets on my computer that have separate columns for the multi-copy

As the amateur I am, I have been playing around with a workaround method to
assist converting Multi-Copy (MC) markers concatenated to decatenate
spreadsheet columns that are displaying both actual hyphenated markers and
when some of those same type MC markers that appear as real Calendar Dates
for those who wish to copy and paste a public projects results into a Excel
spreadsheet. If something does not work, maybe some Excel experts can help

This sheet can be then be manually updated with new members as needed.
