"Menu banks seem like memories, but they aren't. You can't save or recall them. All they do is return you the settings you had when you last changed to another one.
For instance, if you change things in A, and go to B, you'll be in whatever settings you last had when you were in B. If you change some things and go back to A, you'll be back where you were when you left A. If you go back to B, you'll be where you were when you last left B.
There is no way to lock or save these. The best way to deal with them is consciously make an effort to shift into each as you enter an assignment to which they apply, and deliberately change out of them when you're done that assignment."
I believe it's a un-practical design. Occasionally, I'd like to got back to base point for my settings. While I use Save/Load camera settings occasionally, I'd like settings to be written down for comparison purposes and my own sanity.
This spreadsheet provides a medium for you to record your preferred settings (and possibly print them).
How to use it? Just open the spreadsheet and navigate through the different tabs. It's self explanatory. Give it a try!
Don't spend too much time fiddling with the spreadsheet. You're better off just shooting away and enjoying your camera.
Thanks for the spread sheet,it gave me a basis from which to start on my then new D700.
With type of shooting I do I have made adjustment in my banks. But I always keep "A" bank as a wildcard bank, for unique situations. When finished with the unique situation in A bank, I hit reset to default. Hell, I figure Nikon's defaults aren't that bad.

Gee, it must be getting close to the holidays! All of a sudden, after weeks of no action at all, there's a run on the Spreadsheet for the Awesome New Toy!!!!
A few days ago I asked Hassan to send me the spreadsheet in exchange for my promise to get it up and accessible. With the holidays, I promised him it will be up within a week. I now have it, so you can look for it somewhere on this forum by New Year's. So we can all stop hassling him ...

I'm on a mac as well don't know if that has something to do with it. if someone would be willing to email me the file I'd be so appreciatiuve.
Instructions how to dl the file. Click on the link. You will see on your right hand corner of the screen, its prompting you to copy and type in the letters you see in the box. Then hit ENTER. It opens a new page. Click on "Download your file here" box near the bottom of the page.
Okay, folks, I've given it a shot. I've tried to post Hqasem's D700 spreadsheet.
This is my first try, and I'm just learning how to make webpages, so there are bound to be mistakes. If you find any (in the webpage or in the spreadsheet itself), in particular broken links, etc., please send me a PM so that I can try to fix it.
I hope it works!!! And in the meantime, thanks again Hqasem!!!
