    Not really ... You are much more ambitious than I was ... and vastly more diligent.

    The table of transmitters on the Transmitters tab is defined as a named range called "trans" and this name is used instead a cell references in various formulas .... Examples include G16 and A1 on Workings ... This range was defined as ending on row 91 ... Probably because I only attempted to create fewer than 90 .ini files.

    The fix is Formulas ... Name Manager ... Click on "trans" and then click Edit ... change the range in the "Refers to:"

    The attached works for me.

    Thanks Graham - works for me too.
    I had seen the "trans" in the formulas and had guest you had never expected to go over 90 rows but couldn't work out where the range actually was

    I was not thinking of doing anything other than the Main Txs until I came upon the Ofcom before and after spreadsheets during a Google search - and got to thinking... (dangerous occupation, thinking)

    For future reference ... It is probably not too tricky to mod the INI spreadsheet to use the Ofcom spreadsheets as is.

    Here are the New Tuning ini's for the Major Transmitters for UK Freeview First Quarter 2019 (that's January - March) Re-tune events just released by Digital UK.
    Code:
    United Kingdom - London - Hemel Hempstead(Mar 27 2019) 	        01/12/2018 13:03:04
    United Kingdom - Wales - Moel y Parc(Feb 27 2019) 	        01/12/2018 12:58:04
    United Kingdom - Westcountry - Beacon Hill(Mar 27 2019) 	01/12/2018 13:15:58
    The Hemel Hempstead Mux doesn't appear to be any different to the April 18 2018 Update.

    The Beacon Hill update is the first I have seen where they are switching off the 2 extra HD Mux's COM7 & COM8
    Although they have never added to the old NPVR ini - Guess there are no NPVR users in deepest Devon.

    I have failed to find anything that tells me what happens after COM7 & COM8 are switched off. How will the good people of Darkest Devon watch BBC4 HD after March 27? And where will BBC4 HD go in the longer term? Please point me at a link or several. Thanks

    I don't think the BBC give a damn - it will probably go the same way as BBC3 - into oblivion... er that should have read "Will become a wholly on line service" so that you can watch it on your full HD 1080p 4" display telephony thing

    I have just found this in the: Digital_UK_installer_briefing_for_700MHz_clearance _events_Q1_2019_update_12-12-18.pdf

    The Arqiva COM 7 and COM 8 multiplexes will close at a small number of transmitters during
    2019/early 2020 following 700MHz clearance in certain areas. These transmitters are:
    Beacon Hill, Caradon Hill, Caldbeck, Fenham and Sheffield. As a result, some Freeview
    channels will no longer be broadcast from these particular sites.

    Most channels carried on these multiplexes are +1 or HD simulcasts and the main versions of
    these services will continue to broadcast as normal. Information for viewers will be available
    ahead of each clearance event at freeview.co.uk/tvchanges

    These multiplexes will close at Beacon Hill on 27 March 2019. Changes at Caradon Hill in the
    same region (Westcountry) will take place in Q2.
    So it looks as though they don't give a sh...damn. They certainly can't watch any Television or worse. - HD simulcast of the Main Version! They must have been left back in the 20th Century.

    After removing all the +1 and Shopping Channels this is what is left on the 2 Muxs:

    HD Channels
    BBC Four HD, BBC News HD, Al Jazeera English HD, 4seven HD, RT UK HD, Quest HD

    SD DVB-T2
    Keep It Country, Travelxp, FreeSports, Now 80s, Together, PBS America, Forces TV

    I would be most peeved to loose several of the above.

    You prompted me to turn over some stones ... and I found this ...

    It seems that most of the country has already been cleared from the 700 band ... meaning that most of us will not be affected again in the future (including you and I using the Mendip transmitter).
