After instruction 3 but before 4

In cell C4 there is a spelling error, "withn" which the program picked up but it it not listed at all in the exercise.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Should change "withn" to "within" in the sample file.

The exercise twice refers to "LastWeekMiles". I notice the tab in file VehicleMiles is called "MilesLastWeek". When I did the exercise, with the tab called "MilesLastWeek" I had to change the defintion in instruction 10 from "MilesLastWeek" to "LastWeekMiles". I closed the file and then reopened. I changed the tab name to "LastWeekMiles". I then redid the exercise and the default definition was now "LastWeekMiles" in the dialog box. Wouldn't it have been easier to have started the exercise with the tab already matching the desired name, "LastNewMiles"? Preferably call the tab "LastWeekMiles? It would save trouble, work and would make more sense for the person doing the exercise.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Verified. The tab should be named LastWeekMiles.

Instruction 5

Instruction 5 reads, it part, "Refers to field to =LastWeekMiles!$C$4:$H$4, click OK". There is no OK button.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The sentence should end "click Close."
