credit card spreadsheet

Recommended Posts

I do believe I'm missing seeing something. Isn't there a column to input a payment made so everything updates? Got everything in and will absolutely love this spreadsheet, just wondering if I really have to make my own calculations to update totals.

After lurking on this site for several weeks, your SS is what made me decide to actually sign up. This thing is great, I'm going to have my weekend full of filling this thing out and seeing exactly where I stand.

 

For any improvements for the 2009 version I do like the "snow ball" that was mentioned before.

 

Also, did you end up making the sheet for installment loans?

I do have an installment one that was not created by me; it's just a generic sheet. I working to incorporate it into the new sheet I do. My sheet will NOT have any option for doing snow ball calculations.

Thanks for creating and posting this great spreadsheet, but I have some questions.

 

Ones all the amounts are entered, does it update automatically? How do you do that?

For example, I've completed the spreadsheet few months ago, no card usage since then. How can I see the updated numbers on todays date?

 

Thanks

No auto updates, info has to be entered manually.

This is great! thank you so much:)

 

1 question- What is that middle part supposed to be telling me ( the 3 payment options) I have entered all of my data, but the 3 payment option percentages are all saying $20?

It's been almost six months since anybody said "Thank You" for this spreadsheet. Thank you nyrfann!

 

@vickyrola (12-11-09) Most cards have a minimum payment of $20.00, so the sheet calculates your minimum for you.

 

If the amount in column D is less than $2,000, it shows a minimum payment of $20 is due. If the amount in column D is $2,000 or more, it shows what the minimum payments would be if your card requires 1%, 2% or 3% minimum payments.

 

 

Then I found an error nyrfann - Columns G, H and I read:

=IF($D7=0,"",IF($D7*$G$2<20,20,$D7*G$2))

=IF($D7=0,"",IF($D7*$G$2<20,20,$D7*H$2))

=IF($D7=0,"",IF($D7*$G$2<20,20,$D7*I$2))

 

They should read:

=IF($D7=0,"",IF($D7*$G$2<20,20,$D7*G$2))

=IF($D7=0,"",IF($D7*$H$2<20,20,$D7*H$2))

=IF($D7=0,"",IF($D7*$I$2<20,20,$D7*I$2))

 

That causes the the H and I columns to reflect the greater of 2% or 3% or $20.00. As it currently sits, column I's 3% of $1,999.99 is calculated at the minimum value of $20.

 

To further mess up columns G-I, if the amount in column D is <$20, it still shows $20 as the minimum payment. I don't know how to write that IF statement.

 

I'm not an Excel expert, I know just enough to be dangerous. If I'm wrong, please be gentle.

I am not sure what you are referring to here, but there is no error. To formula is written correctly and everything calculates correctly.

 

The default $20 is the minimum payment for most c/c unit you reach the threshold where a % kick in. This is why the $20 is for any small balance.

If my balance is $1,800, what is my minimum payment if the threshold is 3%? Is it $20 or $54?

 

I'm not trying to be argumentative, I'm an Excel geek wanna-be - someone who knows just enough to be dangerous but wise enough to know advanced stuff like formulas. That's why I'm so in awe of your spreadsheet.

That's the thing, I am not telling you what your minimum payment is or should be (the field listed is payment options), I am telling you what the payment is if you choose to pay 3%. Every c/c is different, there is no way for me to know when the minimum payment is $20 or when it kicks to a %. There is a big difference between "Payment Options" & "minimum payment"..

 

In this case if you choose to pay 3% then it's $54, I am sure that is significatly higher then what the actual minimum payment is.

First off let me say Thank you for your work on this spreadsheet. I love it, I have added a column for my own that shows what days are being reported to the bureaus so that I know when my payments are due.

 

Just something to consider if you ever update.

 

Thanks,
