Are you certain you need a spreadsheet?  Iíve found the only tools I need are a standard-function calculator (Googleís online calculator is another option), an online percent change calculator to check my work (see link below), and a daily journal.

There are downsides to using spreadsheets developed by others.  For example, they may contain errors in either logic or math.  You also do not know if the assumptions made by the author of the spreadsheet are appropriate for your particular case.  One of the most concerning downsides Iíve observed is that some individuals follow the numbers generated by the spreadsheet blindly instead of making adjustments in their taper rate and/or amount on an as needed basis.
