  1. This is fantastic! By any chance do you have a version for Mac?

  2. Hello Mark, & thank you for taking the time to put together this spreadsheet for we spreadsheet novices..My (newly married) wife & I have a house we rent out, (her old one) & your excel worksheet seems ideal. But there are many columns that we have no need of, & when I went to print out my document, my printer spat out 43 pages!
    Can you tell me how to remove the extraneous columns so I don’t waste so much paper? I tried to just delete a column, but got an error message that prevented me closing the program entirely for a while.
    thanks for any suggestions you may have, Barry

  3. You know there should be a donate link so you could love a more comprehensive form and reports. Its a great addition to my new business but I would like to see it develop as time passes and would pay to do so.

    Thanks in advance

    • Thanks. I don’t think Excel or Google Docs is well-suited to keep more sophisticated records. If you need financial statements, billing, inventory management, etc., then it’s a good idea to get a real accounting program. If you’re averse to buying a commercial package, try GnuCash.
