Hi all, 

I received a few responses to this....but none that seemed to meet my needs.
Also, many, many more responded saying that this is something that would be
really cool to have.  Unfortunately, I can't find one at this time.  Any
spreadsheet gurus out there looking for a shareware item to develop, here's
one for ya!  Thanks for all the responses.
