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.
As a small-business owner, blogger Alexa Mason of Single Moms Income needed a spreadsheet to track all of her business income and expenses. So she created the income tracker spreadsheet. This spreadsheet is particularly helpful for income-earning bloggers, although you can easily swap out the line items to fit your business needs.
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.
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.
Use Google Docs. Google also provides a free office suite of web-based programs (programs you don`t have to download), and these include a spreadsheet program that is straightforward and useful, even if a bit limited in capabilities.
