About the Spreadsheets

All of our spreadsheets work on Microsoft Excel (2010 or newer)

Microsoft Excel is available as part of the Office 365 Plan. More information about the plan is available here.

Absolutely, the spreadsheets work both on Windows and Mac

Although you can open our spreadsheets on your smartphone or via Excel Online, we do not recommend using them on these platforms.

Multiple features requiring advanced calculations, functions and macros (VBA) are indeed not available online or on mobile. Therefore, the spreadsheets will not operate as intended

When purchasing our Ultimate Rental Property Analysis Spreadsheet, you will receive:

  • Excel Template (XLSB): Main excel spreadsheet to run your rental analysis
  • User Guide (PDF): Document describing the key features of the spreadsheet and how to use it
  • Demo Content (XLSB): Excel template filled with demo content used as an example to quickly help you use the spreadsheet efficiently 

Our House Flipping & Rehab Spreadsheet will come with the Excel template (XLSB), both blank and filled with demo content

No, each license is individual and allows for the use of the spreadsheet on one computer by one user. Should you require additional licenses, please proceed with multiple purchases.

Licenses are individual and cannot be shared with third parties, including co-workers and office members.

For group licenses adapted to offices and professional setups, please contact us for a personalized quote.

We update our spreadsheets on a regular basis based on customers’ feedback and suggestions.

Absolutely. We recommend all users to go through our documentation to quickly learn about all the features available in our spreadsheets.

If you still have technical questions after reading our documentation, feel free to reach out. We’ll be more than happy to assist you.


Your license key is available in both your order confirmation email and on your account page.

It is a string of characters (both numbers and letters) such as: XXXX-ec6e0c9a-c71c4c77-6e256cff

Order Confirmation Email

You can find your license key in your order confirmation email received after checkout. It will be displayed below the name of the spreadsheet you purchased:

Note that if you downloaded the spreadsheet before June 2021, the license key will not appear in the email so you will have to access your account page to retrieve it.

My Account

Your license key is also available on your account page. To access it, simply follow this link to your orders and then click on “License Manage”  next to your order.

The details of your license key will then be displayed under the “License Key” column:

In this example, the license key to be copy pasted in the spreadsheet is: Demo-ec6e0c9a-c71c4c77-6e256cff

Be careful to properly copy paste the license key (without any blank space at the end) in the spreadsheet for proper validation.

Registering your spreadsheet is easy. When first opening the spreadsheet, the following window will automatically popup:

Enter your license key (see previous question on how to find it) in the “License Key” field then click on “Activate”. Be careful not to have any blank space when copy pasting your license key in the spreadsheet.

Once activated, the following message will be displayed:

“License Key Successfully activated for ####”

After confirmation, you can simply close the window by clicking on “Close” or using the X button located in the upper-right corner of the window.

The spreadsheet is now fully activated on your computer. Have fun!

Note: if the License Manager window does not automatically popup at first opening, you can open it by clicking on the “Manage License” button available on the Disclaimer tab of the spreadsheet:

The number of license keys included in your order depends on the version of the spreadsheet you purchased:

  • Light Version: does not require any license key
  • Advanced Version: includes 1 license key per order
  • Pro Version: includes 5 license keys per order

If you purchased the Pro version of our spreadsheets, you can generate up to 4 additional license keys (for a total of 5 keys) on your account page.

Click on “License Manage” next to your order:

Under “Key Generator”, click on the “Generate License Key” button:

The license key is now created and will appear in the license key table located above the generator. You can now copy paste it in your spreadsheet (see “How do I register my spreadsheet?” question for more details)

If you wish to delete your license key (to generate a new one for instance), simply go to your orders under your account page.

Then click on “License Manage”

On this page, click on the “Delete” button next to the license key you wish to delete.

Once deleted, you can easily generate a new one by using the Key Generator located below (see question “How do I generate additional license keys”)

You can easily change the computer associated with your license key, either in the spreadsheet directly or via your account page.

In the spreadsheet

Click on the “Manage License” button available in the Disclaimer Tab of the spreadsheet:

Then click on “Deactivate This Workbook”. 

Attention: by deactivating the workbook, the spreadsheet will close automatically without saving. You will have to open it again (on the computer you wish to associate the spreadsheet with) in order to activate it using your existing license key.

In your Account Page

Go on your Orders page and then click on “License Manage”  next to your order.

Then click on the “Deactivate” button next to your license key in order to unlink it to the current computer.

As a result, the domain (i.e. equivalent to your workbook key) will disappear and the column will remain empty.

The spreadsheet is now ready to be open and activated on another computer (see question “How do I register my spreadsheet” for my information on that process)

The Workbook key is a unique identifier associated with your computer. Each individual license gives you the right to use the spreadsheet on one computer.

Each license key is associated with and active on one computer only and will therefore not operate on any other computer.

If you wish to change the computer associated with your license key, please refer to the question “How can I associate my license with another computer” available in this FAQ

The Check Status button enables you to quickly check the status of your license key in regard to the spreadsheet and computer you’re using.

It will tell you if the license key is active or not, and whether it is valid for that domain (i.e. your computer).

Technical Support

Although we have tested our spreadsheets in multiple environments and on various platforms, we cannot assure that excel will operate properly in all environments. For that reason, we highly recommend you to download the free version of each spreadsheet and try it out on your system first.

Please also verify the version of excel you are using as old versions tend to create incompatibility issues (that are not related to our spreadsheets). Additionally, if you are trying to open the spreadsheets at work, please note that corporate networks tend to have security systems that may prevent Excel from working properly.

For additional information on how to solve this issue, please follow the recommendations from this page.

Tabs of our spreadsheets will remain locked after purchase in order to maintain the integrity of the spreadsheets (workbook structure, formulas, etc). This does not prevent you from entering your own data in the spreadsheets in order to run custom analysis.

User data must be input in the blue cells which are unlocked in our spreadsheets (other cells, such as grey or white cells, are calculated cells used by the spreadsheet to make calculations and cannot be modified by user).

We are responsible for the features that are advertised on this website and provided in the spreadsheets. So we will happily do the following:
– Solve bugs if there is any (if you discover one, please feel free to reach out and we’ll correct the spreadsheet in no time)
– If you face any issues downloading, installing, opening, or using the spreadsheet, we will provide assistance
– If you have any questions on the spreadsheet and on how to use it, we will guide you too!

However, we will not provide any financial advises or guidance or review real estate opportunities for you. Please use caution and seek the advice of qualified professionals. Check with your accountant, lawyer or professional advisor, before acting on this or any information.
