Not sure why I never noticed this before but I see that there are no calculations for exterior paint.  Does anyone have a formula they use?  I thought of copying the formula for the exterior siding but that can only show it in SF and I would rather have it in gallons.  Copying an interior paint I need to use the wall covering variables which are not used on the exterior.

SF/area coverage per gallon of the paint you are using. Ie. sf/400sf per gallon = gallons needed.

I got that but I can't get the units correct.  The formula has it uneditable and lists it as SF

Figured it out.  I was trying to make the adjustments to the accumulative calculation instead of the list.
