Give me something good !!

Ah, again I need to move my home management system(ghar_ka_hisab). In morning, we are updating our expenses in thinkfree excel sheet(thinkfree.com) and got a critical bug. This bug seems to be in logic part because its not calculating the expenses properly.
(http://www.thinkfree.com/fileview.tfo?method=callFileView&
filemasterno=678659&filekey=lj0jjrlbw0
, The total should be equal and difference should be 0.)

I used to use openoffice for Home Management expenses, but now my system become older and can leave me anytime,so we decided to move on network.Before using thinkfree, I have started using Google spreadsheet, but that was completely a bad product implemented(not designed) by Google. After looking at Abhishek's blog and a great trust shown by Ankur, we decided to move on to ThinkFree. But :(, I am searching for the next, which can handle by complex calculations >>> ANY IDEA !

Don't think u saw my blog properly. For home expenses, I suggested BillMonk not ThinkFree. You must try Billmonk and stop implementing your own logic in excel!!!

Boss I have checked now BillMonk. Can you please figure out the work i need to do for putting a milk expense that cost Rs. 7 and divided equally into 3 person. Becasue this is the most common entry we do !

I have seen your excel and the entries you make in it. I assure you that Billmonk works in similar fashion. Just spend a few minutes getting used to it and you will see that it divides 7 Rs in 3 people and will inform them also that they need to pay you 2.33 Rs each and show 4.66 Rs in your receiving area, 2.33 Rs from each of the people.
Once you start using it you will find it simple and great!
It is always a little difficult moving from a working solution.
