Hi,
The discrepancy there is the proof coins; your list includes 1980S and 1980S proof, 1999P and 1999P Proof. The Year/Mint/Variety box includes only one listing for 1980S and one for 1999P. The grade you select indicates if it’s a proof or not. While a proof coin and a mint state coin are two different products and not two grades of the same product; they are still of the same Year, Mint and Variety. Each price list entry includes a space for each value in every grade, whether those are the business grades or proof grades and includes space for both the proof and business strike mintages.
In the image below you can see that entries in the Red Book are listed in this same fashion; each line represents a unique Year and Mint Mark combination and then values are displayed for various business grades and proof grade where applicable. Both proof and business strikes were minted in Philadelphia but there’s just one line in the price list for each year’s Philadelphia coinage.
Of course, you can add those two columns to the price list and they would automatically appear as choices on the Year/Mint/Variety box but there’s really no necessity for them.

I understand the technical reasons why the nonproof and proof are combined, but I was hoping I could use Exact Change to help me building sets. In this case, I know I need 18 coins to complete the SBA dollar set, but there isn't a simple way to find out which ones I have and which ones I need. I need to keep a separate checklist to keep track of each set, which sort of defeats the purpose of using Exact Change.
I'm at work and don't have access to my Red Book to look at their SBA section, but most other sites/lists look like the one here: http://www.usacoinbook.com/coins/dollars/susanbanthony/ with the proofs separated from the nonproof coins.

I just looked at my Red Book, and it shows 18 separate lines for the SBA dollars. I've attached a scan.

Was having an issue finding the Proof set myself. The 2 coin Uncirculated set showed up in the mint sets but the proof was nowhere to be found.
