Startup Financial Model Excel Compatibility
Q: What spreadsheet software will be able to open the downloaded spreadsheet version of the Startup Financial Model from within the web app?
A: The spreadsheet version of the Startup Financial Model was built and optimized around Excel 2010/2011 or newer for both PCs and Macs,which is required to operate the model properly. No other application has the calculation power or capability to handle the 860,000+ complex calculations. The model does work with Office 365, but has significant issues with how it looks and acts in the interface. In addition, Microsoft does not have all capability built into its online products yet, so we do not recommend using our product with Office 365. While the model can be opened with Google Sheets, Mac Numbers, Open Office, and Libre Office, none of those applications will properly run the model.
