Thanks for responding michaeljc70!

I Googled "product by Quantex and found some facts about what you used previously.

System Requirements:

You will need an internet connection to run QPP.

This program is an Excel based program. Why? EXCEL is an incredibly powerful tool. You can perform full blown Monte Carlo analysis and a range of sophisticated functions in EXCEL. Using EXCEL helps to keep development costs down and to make it easier to update the tool with new features, etc.

For PCs: You will need Microsoft Office 2002 or newer. If you don’t have Office, you can download a free trial copy of it from Microsoft (link) but you will need to make sure that your operating system supports the trial of Office. For example, Windows 7 supports Excel 2007 and 2010 while Windows XP does not support these newer versions of Office. (Alternatively, we have had luck buying older, shrink wrapped versions of MS Office at a discount on eBay.)


Now that I understand it is an Excel based program, it doesn't help me to give you an answer to your original question; "Where can I find something like QPP?"

I have learned of several "customized" Excel based creations for different custom uses, but I'm sorry I don't have any better answer to your request.
