I am still sat here trying to fathom out the formatting on the Charity Accounts templates.
I really cannot believe how many hours it takes - still, i am hoping that by the time i actually get the set of accounts i will have learned something, ok, maybe a lot!! lol
Feel desperately like I want to scream!!

    Hooray, glad to hear it. I'm now really glad I won't have to do a set... but if I do, I know who to ask!! :lol:
    See, now you can think about specialising in it ;-)

    I think you may have a point there Monsoon!
    For the amount I've had to learn to produce this set of accounts and work the templates, it would be worth trying to get more work in the area (paid at least cos this one is purely for love lol!!).

    I've had problems in that, if I save the template in "autohide" status then Excel corrupts the file and i lose all the policies I had typed in and agreed - it only took two attemps at losing the data to realise what i was doing wrong grrr!!.
    Also, there are some funny quirks on the notes that send you running all over spreadsheet trying to find out what boxes need filling so you can get rid of error codes on analysis, and then even longer to find out what you need to do to correct the error code you caused by adding the info needed to correct the initial error code lol!!!!

    All good fun I'm told!!!!
    However, i do believe this will be one of those things that you learn something different every time I will come to use this.

    Hope i make sense - I've spent so long on this, and what with Christmas around the corner too, I've gone a tadge doolally lol!!

    Happy Christmas
