Is this patentable?  It took days to create one that compiled the data in a certain manner that we required, but does so doing meet the threshold for being patenable?  Thanks in advance

Mathematical formulas and equations are not patentable on their own.
 
Consider revising your question to the input and output.  What are you solving.  Is your approach and technique novel?

What are you trying to protect?  How do you want to use this new SS?  Can you keep it a trade secret?  Without knowing more along these lines, it's difficult to tell.
