Stumped on frequency calibration

I just fired up WSPR today for the first time. I want to be certain I have alll my ducks in a row so I read up on frequency calibration. I picked two different frequencies and got the numbers from WSPR. Using the B= formula, I came up with 0.796ppm. But the A= formula doesn't make sense.

A=d1-Bf1

does that mean A= d1 - B x f1?
or is Bf1 a frequency I have not figured out?

If I calculate according to the first, that says I am 7.635hz off.

When I try to run fcal, it doesn't like my dat file and gives me an error, so that route is blocked.

Does it really matter?

After this headache, I just want to shut it all down and watch TV...
