Do you have a computer and if you do use a spread sheet. If not big chief tablet and a no 2 pencil.

Learned on Lotus 123 in the 80's and you really can make a spreadsheet do just about anything.

Same here, I was in a network group for 16 years at the famous American Airlines, so we did everything on spread sheets. Still use them today and to make no bones about it, I know exactly what it cost me on every job, day, week, year, whatever.

Thanks for the replys guys. If anyone doesn't mind, Could someone show me like a layout of how you layout things? Please, you dont have to put in numbers, or fake numbers would work, not interested in that, but a thing i could go off could help me out, if anyone feels up to it.
