Excel FSM automates your custom excel financial statements


A universal financial statement writer and a powerful Trial Balance program.

ExcelFSM adds the high level concepts of financial statements to Excel, i.e.: trial balances and the notion of debit and credit; as-of dates; accounts; grouping accounts into financial statement "Items"; grouping "Items" into "Totals"; adjusting entries; working papers; and more.

ExcelFSM transforms globally-used Microsoft Excel into:
