Posting Excel Spreadsheets


A few people are having trouble posting their Excel spreadsheet on their blog.

I have just included an empty Excel spreadsheet (it only includes a smile):


I did this by clicking on the Add Media icon (top left hand corner icon) and then Documents and then click on Add New. You can then attach a file from your computer, such as an Excel spreadsheet.

I hope this helps.

Mal Kenny Question

Question from Mal Kenny:

“Hey Martin,

When filling in my spreadsheet for all the different years, I noticed some numbers are different…

…for example, say when I look at the 2015 balance sheet for my company … beside the 2015 column is the 2014 numbers…

… when I checked the 2014 annual report for the numbers to see if they match up … they are slightly different to the numbers in the 2015 annual report in the 2014 column.

So what numbers should I use ?

Thanks heaps Mal”

Martin: Anyone else notice this issue with their firms when entering the numbers for their firm? If so, which numbers do you think you should use, and why?

The Final AcCountdown

  • Hamburgers – not just tasty, also helpful

Let me give you the hot tip – I have a toolbox full of acronyms that someone has read out to me from a Microsoft Powerpoint, in Calibri size 14 font, with a soothing corporate gradient footer plastered across the bottom – and I can’t remember what any of the letters stand for. Yep, CPORTS, 5 P’s, 6 P’s, AID, SMART etc. they’re all in a metaphorical toolbox that lives in the dark recesses of my mind and I have no idea what they stand for, or even what some of the concepts they’re related to are.
