[802SEC] New and Improved Sponsor Ballot Comment Spreadsheet in myProject

 I am happy to announce that with the next software release this week we 
will have completed request/ticket # 1026/108 which states: 

" Improve Sponsor Ballot Comment Spreadsheet.  Making commenters life easy 
is key because,  unlike officers,  they are unlikely to take the time to 
educate themselves to work around problems. Do not use macros in this 
solution since some companies do not allow users to download macros.  Some 
data on validation can be found here 
In addition to the CSV download, provide the commenter the ability to 
download a MSExcel comment spreadsheet that has the following:  
* data validation to the MS Excel spreadsheet (only allow ASCII character 
*validate number fields to allow numerals and/or Roman numerals  
* data validation messages.  
* Turn off auto correct.  
* Only allow ASCII character set   

* Developers have added data validation to ballot XLS spreadsheet as per 
proposed resolution 
* Generate a XLS spreadsheet for myBallot comment import which includes 
similar data validation as the previous ePoll XLS
* The ballot name and close date are included in the spreadsheet header. 
* Ensure subclause is a single item which allows numbers, dots, and alpha 
* Line and page number now accept Roman numeral values. 

Please let me know if you have any questions about this change.
