Oct 5, 2019 - MAJOR CHANGE to all our Ledgers

Rather than offering excel ledgers that have been compiled into .exe files (using a third party compiler).  
We are now selling all the Excel ledgers as purely excel files (.xlsm files).  They will not be compiled by a third party compiler.

There are 2 significant benefits;
1.  There will be no further complications with security, that were becoming more common with the .exe files.
2.  Users will now be able to use these spreadsheets on BOTH Mac and PC. Previously, these would only work on a PC.
3.  You will be able to run the ledgers on many third party spreadsheet programs, and not just with Excel.
4.  There will be no "activation" codes required for "paid" versions of the ledgers.

NOTE: change to the "demo" versions.
* because all demos are not "compiled" by a third party compiler, there is no way to offer a 30 day trial period. But we still wish to offer a demo.  So we now provide demos with the "save" feature disabled.  All paid versions will have a fully functioning "save" feature.

We anticipate and are fully confident, that all spreadsheets sold now as .xlsm files, will be highly reliable, and without issues from user computers.  They will be as reliable as any other excel file created by Microsoft Excel.
