This article describes a personal computer spreadsheet model (template) that aids in searching for alphabetical letter-shift word-pairs (e.g., cheer-jolly, shift-value 7). It complements my November 1988 Word Ways article demonstrating how non-computer-experts can tap the computer's power for logological studies by using commercially-available, inexpensive spreadsheet applications programs like Lotus 1-2-3. A motivated novice with little experience using personal computers can learn to use a spreadsheet application program in a few hours.
