Excel has many configuration possibilities and the spreadsheets downloadable from this web page may not work for you.
If you download one of these spreadsheets (or other files) "you're on your own."
ephemeris generating spreadsheet for 54 BTEs (updated

for all BTEs. No longer supported
This is where I maintain spreadsheets referred to in the book Exoplanet Observing for Amateurs.

64x64_AS.dll Artificial Star plug-in, courtesy Ajai Sehgal (use "Save to disk" option). Note: MaxIm DL v4.59 has a plug-in bug that has been fixed with v4.60 (released August 3).
Text file of 1259 Landolt stars with B, V, Rc and Ic
magnitudes, for doing all-sky photometry (SDB&DAT files).
Unzip both to a directory, run TheSky, Data/SkyDatabaseManager, navigate to that directory, highlight the SDB-file & Add.
(It shouldn't be necessary to Import the DAT-file, Define & compile.)
Text file of 2551 stars that Arne Henden measured (at
least 4 times) with B, V, Rc and Ic magnitudes, for doing
all-sky photometry (SDB&DAT files).
Unzip both to a directory, etc (see above). Note: Arne's mag's appear to exhibit better internal consistency than Landolt mag's (more recent measurements).
