Protection of formulae : How often have you forgotten to protect the cell contains the formula that took you hours to test and perfect. It takes one instance of honest human error, and that formula is gone.
"Spreadsheets for Small Business" is a complete package of ready-made spreadsheets that optimizes and facilitates a series of business processes such as sales exec commission tracking, calculating business expenses and planning budgets. The "Spreadsheet for Small Business" package incorporates valuable programmed spreadsheets such as "Small Business Expense Spreadsheet" - provides accountants and tax-preparers with a complete report on relevant business expenses; "Producer's Budget" - helps users to establish budgets and keep track of their spending; "Monthly Personal Budget" - designed to track daily, weekly and monthly spending for individuals.
Over time, the spreadsheet grew into what we see today, in the form of Microsoft Excel and a number of similar products on the market. The power of the spreadsheet has grown almost exponentially, allowing the user to create customised formulae, charts, pivots and so on. Worksheets can be linked and updated automatically.
You may also want to track your current spending on one sheet with columns for different categories. Some individuals will list the budgeted amount in one column and then list the actual amount spent in the column next to it.
