There are quite a few free spreadsheet programs out there that will give you the capabilities of Microsoft Excel without the expensive price tag. In fact, there is an awesome chance that you might even like one of these free programs better.
Kingsoft Spreadsheet is the best free spreadsheet program for a couple of reasons - its beautiful, intuitive interface is super simple to use, and it supports a huge number of features.
It can work with the same file types as nearly every version of Microsoft Excel, like the XLSX, XLS, and CSV formats. Not only can you open those common file types but you can also save back to them, which is something not every free spreadsheet program allows.
Also, OpenOffice Calc allows different tool sets to be detached from the main program window to provide more space for working while still providing access to tons of useful features. The Extension Manager lets you add features to OpenOffice Calc that aren`t included in the default program, which is another way you can customize the program to your liking.
After searching for the perfect budgeting template for years, Libby Kane of Business Insider decided to create her own. This template is perfect for anyone looking to track both their business and personal spending all in one place. While it is pretty detailed, it`s easy to simply delete or rename the categories that don`t fit your lifestyle.
Check your computer. Most systems come with free spreadsheet software pre-installed. Windows computers usually have Microsoft Works, a free office suite that includes a lightweight spreadsheet program. Microsoft Office, which includes the Excel spreadsheet program, is also pre-installed on most Windows systems. It can be loaded on a trial basis at no charge and used to create spreadsheets for a limited number of trial uses.
