Cashflow Plan needs Excel (releases 5, 7, 8, 95, 97, 2000, XP, 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016) running on Windows (95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/Vista/Win7,8,10).

Important Note: Cash-Plan requires a Windows-based, desktop version of Excel. It will not run, on account of its extensive use of macros, with any cloud-based versions of Excel (or other similar spreadsheet types). If using Office 365 or Office 16, Excel must be installed on a Windows PC.

The downloadable trial versions of Cashflow Plan Micro, Lite, Plus, Super and Ultra (download links in table below) are operational but contain use restrictions. They can be remotely upgraded after payment to become fully-operational commercial versions. Alternatively, unrestricted, fully-operational versions can be downloaded immediately after payment. Check here for upgrade and payment methods.

The downloadable Cashflow Plan Free (download link in table below) is free - it is a fully usable and useful both as a package in its own right and as a great introduction to the entire Cashflow Plan range.

Note:
If you need projections extending beyond 12 months for a business plan etc., you should have a look at Exl-Plan, our range of fully-integrated financial planners which can generate projections for months and quarters extending to three, five or seven years. Details and trial-version downloads.
        
Quick Guide to Cashflow Plan Versions

  • You don't need to download a trial copy prior to making a purchase. If you know which version of Cashflow Plan you want, you can buy and immediately download a fully-operational copy here.
  • You cannot download one version of Cashflow Plan and then remotely upgrade it to a different version. To switch, you must download the specific version you need and then upgrade it.
  • If you envisage upgrading a trial copy to fully-operational, you should install Cashflow Plan, at the very outset, onto the PC where you would propose to use the upgraded version.

3. After You Download

Suggestion: Instead of having to refer back to the notes below, you may wish to open and print this Quick Start Guide. It will lead you through installing, running and exploring Cashflow Plan. In particular, it contains critical information about setting Excel to load and run Cashflow Plan's macros which are essential for using Cashflow Plan.

Note: Your downloaded copy of Cashflow Plan includes a Word-based, 100-page manual suitable for all versions of Cashflow Plan and a series of Flash-based tutorials (running for 19 minutes) covering setting up Excel, getting started, the basics and using Quik-Plan. After installation, they can be found in the CASH* folder and they are accessible via the Start > Programs > Cashflow Plan menu.

Installation

Once Cashflow Plan has been downloaded (and unzipped if appropriate), run the CASH*.EXE file and you will be guided through the installation procedure. You will be informed in README.TXT on how to uninstall Cashflow Plan.

Running

When installed, do one of the following to run Cashflow Plan:

  • Select Cashflow Plan from the Start, Programs menu (W95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/Vista/Win7,8,10).
    or
  • Load Excel and open the CASHPLAN.XLS file from within CASH* subdirectory or folder specified during installation (this may be located below the EXCEL subdirectory or MY DOCUMENTS folder).

You can watch several How to ... Tutorials covering the basics of setting up and using Cashflow Plan.

IMPORTANT: When loading Cashflow Plan into Excel, you must enable macros so that Cashflow Plan's menus, buttons, tools etc. can operate. The following instructions explain how to do this for different versions of Excel.

If using Excel 5, 7, 8, 95, 97, 2000, XP and 2003:

  1. If Excel displays a message about enabling macros while Cashflow Plan is loading, you must select Enable Macros.
  2. If Cashflow Plan loads and then displays an "Important Notice" and a message indicates that Cashflow Plan has not been properly loaded, you need to reduce the security level set within Excel from High to Medium via Tools | Macro | Security | Security Level. You should then close and reopen Excel and then reload Cashflow Plan. During reloading, you will be asked whether you want to enable macros. This is quite safe to do provided you secured Cashflow Plan from our site or another reliable, trustworthy source. For more guidance, click the thumbs below.

    Click to display full size Click to display full size Click to display full size
    Load Excel, select Tools, Macro, Security ... ... click Medium security level and close Excel. Reload Excel, load Cashflow Plan and, when prompted, enable macros.

  3. If Cashflow Plan loads and all its worksheets are visible but its special menus (they all start with * to simplify identification) do not appear in Excel's toolbar, you will need to temporarily reduce the number of menus displayed by Excel by disabling any add-ins which create special menus. To do this, use Tools | Add-ins to open a list of available add-ins. Uncheck the relevant add-ins, press the OK button, close and reload Excel. This should allow Cashflow Plan to load fully and display its menus. To restore the disabled add-ins, reverse the procedure described above.
  4. Occasionally, Cashflow Plan will load satisfactorily but may not display its special menus starting with *Assumptions, *Protect and so on. This may be due to a conflict with some add-ins loaded automatically by Excel. The fix is to reload Excel, uncheck all add-ins via Tools | Add-Ins; reload Excel and then open the Cashflow Plan file.
  5. If a blank screen appears while loading of Cashflow Plan and the system hangs, there has probably been a memory leak, caused by another application, which has reduced the memory available to Excel and Cashflow Plan. To resolve, use CTRL+ALT + DEL to close down Excel and Cashflow Plan. Then, reboot the PC to wash out the leak.

If using Excel 2007:

  1. Change the security level in Excel 2007 to enable it run macros by checking that Excel's Macro Settings within the Trust Center have been set to Disable all macros with notification. Access the Trust Center by clicking the Office button and selecting Excel Options. Having done that, you must permit Excel to run macros each time that Cashflow Plan indicated in #2 and #3 below.
  2. Once Cashflow Plan has loaded, look out for a message Security Warning - Macros have been disabled and an Option button immediately below Excel's Home tab. Note that this warning is much less evident than that used in earlier versions of Excel.
  3. Click the Options button, specify Enable this content in the Security Alert Macro dialog and wait a few moments for Cashflow Plan's macros to run. Note that Cashflow Plan's menu bar (*Assumptions, *Protection etc.) is located in the Add-Ins tab. For ease of identification, the Cashflow Plan menus all start with an asterisk (*), e.g. *Assumptions. Cashflow Plan's special toolbar also appears in the Add-Ins tab. Note that by design the toolbar does not appear for every Cashflow Plan worksheet. For more information on using Cashflow Plan with Excel 2007, see the comprehensive Checklist and FAQs at http://www.planware.org/cashfaq3.htm.

If using Excel 2010, 2013, 2016:

  1. Change the security level in Excel 2010, 2013, 2016 to enable it run macros by checking that Excel's Macro Settings within the Trust Center have been set to Disable all macros with notification. Access the Trust Center by clicking the File button and selecting Options. Having done that, you must permit Excel to run macros when a Cashflow Plan file is loaded for the first time as indicated in #2 and #3 below.
  2. Once Cashflow Plan has loaded, look out for a message Security Warning - Macros have been disabled and an Enable Content button immediately below Excel's Home tab. Note that this warning is much less evident than that used in earlier versions of Excel.
  3. Click the Enable Content button and wait a few moments for Cashflow Plan's macros to run. Note that Cashflow Plan's menu bar (*Assumptions, *Protection etc.) is located in the Add-Ins tab. For ease of identification, the Cashflow Plan menus all start with an asterisk (*), e.g. *Assumptions. Cashflow Plan's special toolbar also appears in the Add-Ins tab. Note that by design the toolbar does not appear for every Cashflow Plan worksheet. For more information on using Cashflow Plan with Excel 2010, 2013, 2016, see the comprehensive Checklist and FAQs at http://www.planware.org/cashfaq3.htm.

Problems ?
If you experience a problem installing or loading Cashflow Plan, use this Contact Form. Be sure to indicate file name; exact stage at which problem was experienced; and precise nature of problem or text of any message.

NOTE: If you encounter problems and are using Excel 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, see Frequently Asked Questions for Using Excel 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016.

Click here to access more detailed Installation & Running Notes. We suggest that you print these notes for reference. Once installed, you can directly access Cashflow Plan's Online Help from within Cashflow Plan, or via the Start, Programs menu (W95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/Vista/Win7,8,10). You will also be able to open up the 100-page Word-based version of its manual and a series of Flash-based tutorials (running for 19 minutes) covering setting up Excel, getting started, the basics and using Quik-Plan.

If using Vista and if Cashflow Plan's help files fail to load and/or Excel indicates "There was a problem running the macro (1037)." there are two solutions as follows:

  1. Download and install the widely-used Help program (WinHlp32.exe) needed for help files used by some versions of Cashflow Plan. You can get it from the Microsoft Download Center. If this link is broken, search the Microsoft site for "Windows Help program (WinHlp32.exe) for Windows Vista".
  2. An alternative solution is to disregard the help files and simply use the comprehensive manual supplied in PDF format with all versions of Cashflow Plan. This covers the exact same material as the help files. If doing this, you should not click the help-related buttons within Cashflow Plan's worksheets or within the *Cash Help menu. Also, you should turn off Toggle Help for Calculation Errors within Cashflow Plan's *Setup menu.

Note: By design, Excel's autocalculate function does not work in Cashflow Plan. To update projections, click one of the "C" buttons within Cashflow Plan's toolbar or use the calculate options within the *Tools menu. To restore autocalculate to Excel after using Cashflow Plan, you may need to close and reload Excel.
