I believe this question has been answered numerous times. The idea is for you to get acquainted with your camera. The spreadsheet does just that by making you go from menu to menu following the spreadsheet and setting up the camera. You can adjust settings according to your liking. This way you can learn what the camera will actually do instead of just downloading the settings and placing them in your camera without you gaining any more knowledge about your camera than when you started. Its a learning tool.
