We have four primary software options, each suited to different users.  To help you decide which one is right for you, review these descriptions:

Additional Considerations

Options A - C require installation on your computer.  If you are using a computer on which you cannot install software, Option D may work for you since it does not require installation; each of the four forms is a separate download.

Option C has no interface for entering PRL data.  Use this option to check whether your ASCII text files meet our PRL Text File Specifications.

Option D provides little assistance to the user except for formatting the PRL spreadsheets. There is no built-in assistance for uploading a PRL report to the NYSDEC. This option is recommended only for users who have expertise with Excel but cannot use any of the other Options (e.g., users who cannot run Windows-based programs or Excel workbooks with VBA Macros).


If you use an “Excel-compatible” spreadsheet program, such as Apple’s Numbers or OpenOffice.org’s Calc, try our Excel-Compatible spreadsheets.


After you have checked the system and user requirements and determined which option to use, download and install the software.
