Worksheet 1b cost errors

I wonder if I have found a few bugs in the DECC 2050 Calculator? And whether these have already been corrected on later versions? I am using version 3.4.6.

Looking at worksheet I.b,

LINE 258: Appears to multiply coal CCS build rates by gas power station CAPEX, and multiplies gas CCS build rates by coal fired power station CAPEX.

LINE 259: Appears to multiply coal CCS installed capacities by gas power station OPEX, and multiplies gas CCS installed capacities by coal fired power station OPEX.

LINE 263: Appears to multiply coal CCS build rates by gas power station CAPEX, and multiplies gas CCS build rates by coal fired power station CAPEX.

LINE 264: Appears to use coal post-combustion build rate when it should use coal post-combustion installed capacity.
