post #136 of 260
I have excel does that make a difference, I load the matrix and never seem to be able to get it to work?

I noticed back in January I added open office and it worked. But, since then I had a computer crash. I don't want to download a new program. I just wished it worked on what I have already.

If you don't have Microsoft Office software on your computer, you aren't completely out of luck. Sun Microsystems has published a program called OpenOffice that allows you to read and edit Word documents, Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations. They have free downloads available for most versions of Windows or Mac OS. All they ask in return is that you spread the word (so I'm paying for my copy right now!). Go to [url]OpenOffice.org[/url] and check it out. It works beautifully. We're using it on some of our office computers to save money and we've had no problem with it.

I have the same question. Is anyone replying to these questions?

I just wanted to add, here is another pricing matrix I made, modeled after Alice's professional matrix. This is the Home & Hobby Matrix.

Thanks,

Thank you so much! I'm just starting out so I'm not charging anything besides the price of materials (I only do cakes for friends since I'm not great yet) and I've always wondered how I would eventually price cakes to sell! It's so wonderful of you to share this with the rest of us!

I downloaded this a few days ago and it truly is amazing! I have been doing cakes for family, and I never knew how much to charge. This really makes things a lot easier!! I accidently erased the formula in the cake column in the calulate price tab. Does anyone know the formula?

Hi mama! Your best bet would be to re-download the matrix you used, then copy and paste the function from the new spreadsheet into the old spreadsheet where it is missing. Hope this helps! Lisa (Loriana)

wow! this is great. I am a CPA and will be giving a "Are you making money?" seminar to KYICes DOS. I hope it's okay to include these spreadsheets as part of my presentation. I will site the CC forum and give credit. If this is not okay, somebody let me know. Thanks.

I certainly don't mind at all. Mine is the Home & Hobby matrix based on Alice Keeler's original. I am sure she wouldn't mind either, but you might want to touch base with her to make sure.

Mine is completely free-ware and meant as just a tool to help CC'ers and anyone else who wants to get an idea of what they are spending as a home baker or hobbyist (minus expenses that business must account for like rent, utilities, insurance, licensing and staff).

Thanks! Loriana (Lisa) icon_smile.gif
