Mac or PC? DOESN'T SAY

Complexity and/or Ease of Use: This program is easy to use. Pages are linked, allowing expenses to carry forward to the following month. Changes made to the budget in later months will follow through to the next month but don't affect previous month's figures. This is useful if you need to tweak those figures or if your expenses change over time. Each page has access to help through a link on the page, and whether or not you're familiar with Excel, this is any easy to use tool for budgeting needs.
