A reader who works for the bankruptcy courts asked if I could put together a "Bankruptcy Matrix" worksheet to make her life a bit easier. She asked for a specific set of columns (info requested by the court system) so that the worksheet might be easily usable as a tool for doing a mail-merge document.

The task didn't sound too difficult, so I gave it a try. Here's a quick screenshot in Excel 2010:


My resulting "Excel Bankruptcy Matrix" spreadsheet can be downloaded below:

Like almost all of my spreadsheets, the worksheets are protected by default, but not password-protected. So you can unprotect each worksheet, then resize and customize all you'd like.

Bankruptcy Matrix: A Few Notes

Since this worksheet is intended to be little more than a listing of debts, there aren't any fancy formulas involved. About the only thing here which might require a bit of is the "Type of Debt" column (Column L).

Column L of the worksheet utilizes Excel's "Data Validation" feature. This is so that users will see a drop-down menu, and can choose from one of three bankruptcy-related debt types:

  • Secured
  • Unsecured
  • Priority Unsecured

This three-item list can be found in (hidden) Cells J1, J2, and J3.

Make a Donation
If you're a user of my Excel spreadsheets and feel that they're worthy of a small donation ... well, that's extremely cool. And I'm truly honored that you'd think so.

The following button will allow you to make a donation (any amount) via Paypal. I would ask, though, that if you're someone who's in substantial debt, and working like crazy to get out, that you please refrain from making a donation to IYM.

Instead, use your intended donation amount as an extra contribution toward your highest-interest debt ... and then drop me an email to tell about how my site or my spreadsheets have helped in some way.

That, I assure you, is payment enough for me.

As always, I am truly grateful for your kindness and continued support!
