Special thanks to VAE for the inspiration. I hope I did the idea justice. :/

I like this quite a bit. However, considering there's nothing to suggest that editing the spreadsheet is possible or would have any affect, the containment procedures seem a bit OTT.
Is it too far to suggest that the O5 are paranoid because it has incredibly sensitive information on everyone?
If someone got a hold of it, they could learn O5 secrets, nuclear launch codes, military secrets, etc.
The O5 are nervous someone may find one of them on there. They're so secretive anyways.
Good luck finding one.
It isn't the only thing you could find there.
Besides, who knows? Someone looking through it might be helped by another SCP to increase his time available .. i might be wrong (working from memory) but the 11 minute snooze clock would work beautifully.
We've already got one.
The Excel file extension should be .xls, I think. I never used the original Office so I'm not sure, but Google searching only comes up with a word filter for MIMEsweeper with the .exl extension.
What does that first picture have to do with anything?
I was originally going to show a photo of the vault itself. Sadly, it was surprisingly difficult to find a photo of a large vault that wasn't in a bank or had "101" emblazoned on the front. So, I went with the next best thing, the access terminals.
What do people think? Is it too irrelevant?
The picture just seems like a non-sequiter. It wasn't till I read your post here that it conneced that it was the outside of the security measures. Plus, the second picture seems to be MIA, possibly that's just me and my spotty connection at the moment.
Since the O5s are so paranoid about this thing, I don't think they would allow a pictuer of the security anyway. Kind of the same thinking that bans photography in Fort Knox.
On a side note, the living population is soon to exceed 7 billion and, since the spreadsheet apparently tracks some number of the dead population, the number would already be over 7 billion assuming cells don't get re-used.
I never said that this thing tracks dead people.
Every person that it tracks is alive. So, what would that imply about our friend PYK/8,888?
As for the population bit, it simply expands as needed.
MOS/1,325 is totally SCP-1427.
