5.0 out of 5 stars Personal finance made simple 4 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having used Microsoft Money for years you get fed up with charts and graphs for everything. You make a slight error in one account and you have re-percussions in another account. Basically its too rigid. I found this book is more for people who have Excel, but are not really sure how to use it.
With this book not only do I get more use out of Excel, it provides sound financial common sense and a host of examples and templates for you to use as you wish.
I keep it simple by using the 'checking account' for bank account and card transactions and then a pivot table to manipulate the information and also I have made a cashflow sheet which I find more useful than the budget template.
You will soon find yourself playing around with functions downloading templates from Microsoft etc.
At the back of the book the author details the VBA code used for clever people who might like to tweak things

Problems to watch out for. My book from Amazon did not include the CD of Templates even though it was plastic wrapped. I went to the publishers and authors website and I was able to download the templates.
There is a template for your stock holdings and prices. You would probably be better off using the insert stock quotes add in from Microsoft as the one with the book didn't work

5.0 out of 5 stars The only tool you need to organize your finances in Excel. 14 May 2006
By Rhonda Cravey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you have Microsoft Excel and you are serious about getting your personal finances in order, then this book is a MUST for your financial library. It covers a large range of personal home finance topics. Each chapter provides an understanding of the topic, along with the appropriate Excel worksheets on the accompanying CD.

If the word Excel sends shivers up your spine, have no fear. The first three chapters are devoted to explaining Excel. If you are already familiar with Excel, just skip the first three chapters.

In addition to the worksheets, there are also many calculators provided on the CD such as: Net Worth Calculator, Mortgage Points Calculator, Rent versus Buy Calculator, Mutual Fund Comparator, and many more.
5.0 out of 5 stars A good personal finance starter, adaptable to Excel 2010 23 Dec 2012
By PHIL - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is clearly written, for a person early in th elearning curve, wanting to get more hands-on with personal finances. It is some years old by now, and I wound up (for my own reasons) rewriting some of the stuff in my Excel 2010, but the formulas are the same. The book disk has Excel templates pre-written. I wanted more time with Excel and an intro to its financial features, so this worked very well for me. At this price, I couldn't ask for better value.
