This will typically paste the data as a formatted and editable table in Word, though none of the formulas will be functional within Word (and the table will not be linked to Excel).
If you don't want the table to be editable in Word, you can "Paste as a Picture" using Paste Special or by choosing the "Picture" option when you right-click in Word to paste the table.
The sample templates can be copied into a Word, Excel or similar office document by selecting the text and using copy/paste—using Windows, outline the text to be selected with the mouse, and hit CTRL-C to copy and CTRL-V to paste.
This template is suitable for freelance businesses that provide services, such as consultants, graphic designers, landscapers, and delivery services.
Instead, our goal is to make the process easier by providing a professionally designed business plan template that you can edit easily using Word and Excel.
Update (7/22/2016): We've added a basic break-even analysis worksheet to the companion Excel workbook.
You may be able to articulate the business overview, vision, objectives, and concise action items in a single page, but you might want more detail in the financial and marketing sections.
For example, you might want to add an extra page to your pricing strategy section for income and cash flow statements and another for breakeven analysis in advertising and promotion.
This template provides a business plan outline with sample questions, tables, and a working table of contents.
It was created for newer versions of Word and Excel (Office 2007 or later) so that you can easily change the fonts and color scheme and the file will be compatible with the mobile and web-based Word & Excel apps.
