Forecast 5 is much cheaper than Castaway but (as far as i can tell from their website) importing from Excel consists of copying and pasting Excel into Forecst 5 - would be a nightmare redoing that every time something changed (My existing Sage 50 Forecasting forecasts are heavily Excel driven)

I'm on 1 x 27" monitor as well (albeit I have a 2nd facing the other side of my desk for meetings) - I don't want to check Outlook constantly and I am not continually transferring data but if I do have do I can resize windows to see 2 or 3 simultaneously

According to Thomson Reuters (https://uk.practicallaw.thomsonreuters.com/8-502-2031?transitionType=Def...(sc.Default)&firstPage=true&bhcp=1):
"When a company goes into compulsory liquidation, the powers of its directors cease and they are automatically dismissed from office (Measures Brothers Ltd v Measures  2 Ch 248)."

Presumably that is also open to being hacked and the link being replaced by one that goes to a fake HMRC page, with the hacker's bank details

Something i once found re "3D formulae":
"Usually references to a range of cells in a formula refer to a flat “rectangle” of cells on a single sheet. A 3D formula adds an extra dimension by extending the rectangle through several adjacent sheets.
To create a 3D Sum formula, click on the AutoSum button (or type =Sum) and then click on the tab of the first sheet to be included in the formula. SHIFT+Click on the last sheet to be included, then select the required cell or range of cells on this last sheet. The formula should look something like this: =SUM(Sheet2:Sheet3!A1:A3)
It refers to the range A1:A3 on all the sheets positioned between Sheet2 and Sheet3, including the end sheets themselves. Moving sheets into or out of the range will change the result."
You could either set the range to be (a part of) the relevant column or put a total formula at the top of each relevant column and then use a 3D formula to sum the totals

As far as I recall, from when I worked in businesses selling tangible goods, your customer is right, in that this is the accepted meaning, regardless of grammar or technicalities.

I don't like webinars as, if I don't physically leave the office, I find it difficult stop working and/or not be disturbed.
I use https://www.ptptraining.com/ at around £50 for half day course.

I use conditional formatting for cells requiring manual input - similar to you it uses a yellow background, but when the cell is empty it has a purple background. This highlights at a glance any manual inputs still needed
