The rumor is that testing is in the final stages:

BTW, what happens when we have to enter more than 25 orders? The template only goes that high. Should we copy/paste the bottom row to create a new order line and rename it order 26 etc?

25 is configured as a hard limit for orders.

He means that when using the order entry form, stop messing with the main tab by deleting rows and such. Just copy & paste your orders there, save it, and send it in.

We are working on a better way.

I would like to bring up the point that telling people that copy in past on the order sheet is safe is a bad idea.

I pasted in my account number in game 101 and that was all it took for my whole turn not to run.

That shouldn't be right, and we'll have to look into this more. Almost all players start with their last order submission and delete the orders from the previous turn, and that works fine. Or paste in all the top section from the previous turn on a blank sheet. Both work. Just check when you are done that the injest section doesn't say "Ref", otherwise you've done something to corrupt what the file needs. This is the first we've heard of a problem in now more than 200 turns in the current format.

I bring up a new form for each turn and when it runs delete the latest. So far no problems and it takes about 3 seconds to fill out the header stuff.

my paste made the merged account number cell into 3 seperate cells for some reason.

it was undetectable until you clicked on it and moved the cursor around

I have been afraid to paste anything to the sheet because of that.

It's likely a problem with pasting the entire cell versus pasting the value. If you right click to paste, and select values, the data inserted is raw text and won't retain any of the characteristics of the source cell.
