Glenfern Associates: TinyApps

Most likely, you have Microsoft Office installed on your PC desktop already. We can help you to exploit Microsoft Office to serve your needs adequately and effectively, and thus improve your productivity noticeably.

TinyApps - Small Applications

TinyApps are small applications. We build them from components of Microsoft Office, extended by VBA. e.g. Excel, Access and Word

Some of the TinyApps we have produced are listed in the table below.


Sector Details of each TinyApp

Financial Services Income Statement for contractors and consultants who trade individually through limited companies.

Recording earnings and expenses, the spreadsheet calculates how much can be drawn by the contractor weekly (or monthly), after taking PAYE, NIC, VAT and Corporation Tax into account.

As time passes, the spreadsheet scrolls through a "window" of one year in length, always focussing on the current year.

Most of the underlying code has been devolved to a DLL, simplifying enhancements and facilitating corrections across a family of related spreadsheets.

This TinyApp has helped the company that commissioned it, to provide services more efficiently to its clientele of contractors and consultants.
