In my response above, there's a link on the word "Here's." Place your cursor over that word, click on it, and it will open an external file storage site called Mediafire. Once that site opens up, there will be words on the left hand side that say "Click here to start downloading." Click on that, and it will open an Excel file with the answer.'s file attachment function can be problematic at times, so many people here just upload attachments via Mediafire. Let me know if you still have an issue with this.
