Is there anyone who can explain how to create a checkbook in Excel using the proper formatting, formula, etc?
I have read the books, trialed, errored and failed miserably and watched more than one very confusing video on youtube.


Thank you.

Did you tried the free ready&easy to use templates?
There are many templates on the net.

Elnina,
I did try it but failed miserably.
I cannot figure out how to get the formula copied to a new workbook then remove the parts I don't want.


I am not usually this computer challenged but Excel has always been foreign to me.


Thank you.

When you find the right template that could work for you, just download it following the instruction, then right click and delete rows or columns you don't want to use.

Just check the net for free templates, find one (or more) you would like to try, and come back for more help. Someone here will walk you thru the download and set up process.

Start with googling: free Excel checkbook templates, then click on image folder to see the images to compare.
The one I recommended above is pretty easy to use, and still could be customized to fit your needs.

You might want to look at this too:

Excel is a horrible idea to use for this.
Why not something dedicated to the task?

Full version is $15.

Here's a couple of FREE Excel templates already done for you from Microsoft.

https://templates.office.com/en-us/C...ter-TM00000043
https://templates.office.com/en-us/C...ter-TM10190983

Here's a free app called Moneypoint which will let you import check data from a CSV file which you may be able to download from your bank.

Here's a link to buy Quicken Deluxe 2017 for $20
Quicken Deluxe 2017 - Intuit Digital

Quicken is and always has been the standard for checkbook and finance software. Why reinvent the wheel?
