Hi Ahuka I just wanted to let you know that I use this template _A_LOT_. I never studied business at school or even computing. I guess that I taught myself the basics of both over the years. I like the nice clean, simple layout of your template and have presented it along with proposals to business professionals. I even received a comment from an asset finance manager that they liked how clear the information had been laid out and presented without "fluff" trying to sugar coat figures. So here I am again grabbing a clean template for another project. :-)

Thanks again.

I'm glad it helped

I'm really glad you found this useful. A fact not widely known in these parts is that I was once a financial manager, so I think my own experience factored into this. I love that these tutorials are still useful for people.
