Patchbay Labeling (Excel?

Does anyone here have an excel template that would work for a 96 point bantom bay?
I suck at using excel and am not sure the best way to go about this.
Thanks

wow I was gonna make this same post yesterday.

It sucks that excel doesn't have a ruler. Everything goes by pixels.

I found the right pixel width to be between 35 and 40 pixels. It took me printing about 10 sheets before I got it right. I guess it would vary on the size of your font and the length of the words.

But try and mess around in the 35-40 pxel range

I've got an excel file for my 96 point TT bay. PM me with your email address and I'll send it to you. It works well for me.

EDIT: It's 2011 and I still get requests for this document. I unfortunately no longer have these files.

Funny enough, Excel doesn't do it very well, but Word does.

Set up a page for landscape mode.

Then use the "table" feature to make a wide table, then use the ruler to get the cells to the right size.

AARRGH!!! I just spent a couple of days building some f'n excel spreadsheets for an SSL patchfield and a REDCO patchfield, which BTW have these jacked up spacings per pair, made it a frikin nightmare! thanks for the link seaneldon. I didn't even venture into WORD, the scum, maybe I should have. I generally like to do thing the hard way anyway. Glutton for punishment and all.

Is that the Signex bay, the one with the D-Sub connectors on the back and the jacks spaced in pairs? If so, could you PM me if you wouldn't mind sharing that? I was on the verge of getting the finest-tipped pen I could get my hands on and labelling it by hand...and my writing's not that good.

It is the DB25-bantam bay, with the normalling/grounding switches. Pretty sweet product, 2U for 96 points, but....

No prob on the PM, the docs are in my work computer so I won't be able to get to it til tommorrow (Tues), but sure thing.

For my patch bay I went into a word doc and changed it into landscape. I then typed an entire row of x's without spacing. When I printed it out I just took it my patchbay and circled the x's that were in the right place. After that I went back to my word doc and filled in the right information where my circled x's were. Patchbay labeling sucks, but in the end, this worked for me. The hard part for me was cutting the strips thin enough

The size of the text you see on the screen is going to be the same size as the text that you will print out, so really all you have to do is use you're eyes and make an easy, but close guess.

Yeah, My wife is doing it in Indesign for me, It's a pain, but coming out nice. After we print it on paper I was going to use this sticky back clear laminating sheet . Stick that to the paper then spray mount the back of it and stick it to the PB.

I have made a patchbay template for my 96pt TT bays with Excel, color coded, with names and numbers. I just print out the ones I need, cut them out, and put them under the plastic sleeves on the bays. It looks very good, and can easily be modified for the various bays. If anyone is interested, I can post it here so you can just modify the type and colors for your gear. How would I post it here?

i have excel sheets for

neutrik NYS 1/4" bays

and

neutrik NPPA - TT - PT
96 pt bantam

They too are color coded, easy to change labelling. I usually print them out, laminate them then put them under plastic sleeves if the bay has them. works great

pm if interested

most important thing when using excel is to look at the print preview page, thats what its going to turn out like, sometimes its largely different to the actual spreadsheet
