You are right....... I just had a look around the internet and I see the term "Book" and "Spreadsheet" used to describe the same kind of concept:
The cash book/spreadsheet
The cash "'book" (i.e spreadsheet) is the final record of all the money that comes into and goes out of your business. It is a good idea to use it to record each transaction, whether it was made in cash, by credit card, by cheque or by the Banks' Automated Clearing System (BACS).
You usually hear Accountants talking about "book keeping" which really is a spreadsheet..........it doesnt neccessarily have to be on computer to be called a spreadsheet.
You know this discussion about BOOKS has brought back my university days to mind..... I forgot myself that some people called spreadsheets "books"
so thanks to whoever brought it up
