I'm going to assume you're looking for something like this. It's just an Excel file used to keep track of finances.

I've used Visual Accounts which is pretty simple but you can tailor it to most needs. It works off images of the manual type forms like receipts, Bank cheques and deposits etc. I know it used to be on extended free trial and is pretty cheap anyway. Print-outs were dire but I expect that has improved in the last 8 years or so. Even so, they were legal and easy to understand. Sure, Page accounts or similar will do the job better but will take a lot more time to learn and use. And it'll set you back a few hundred.

Um... Excel is not free. You might not have paid for it directly, as many computers come with some version of Microsoft Office already installed, right along with a version of Windows, but it is most definitely not a free program.

If you want free spreadsheets, Open Office and Star Office are both, I believe, compatible with Excel, and you can actually open and create Excel documents with Google Docs. All of those are valid free options.

....whatdya think a spread sheet is?
any program for it is just gunna be a fancy version of a spreadsheet with possibly less capababilities
seriously stick with open office or any other free spreadsheet software its easy to use and you can send the info around without people having to download a new program

Okay, let's go backwards a bit....

What do you want this software to do?

If it is for keeping track of income and expenses and such, a spreadsheet really is your best solution. You create it exactly how you want it. Starting with someone else's spreadsheet - or whatever else - will just require you to customize it to suit your purposes anyways.

If you want something for filing your taxes, that's a whole other kettle of fish. What program you use is the least of your considerations.

I used FileMaker Pro for ours, which is a database, which is like a spreadsheet, only more complicated.

nope you worded it correctly but most accounting programs are based on spreadsheets if your looking for something with a tad more features have a look at something like microsoft access which is a pretty decent database software
but a spreadsheet will do the majority of what you want it to do
