  • Just remember not to include extra spaces or tabs.
  • Don't try to line up the column of amounts
  • Just keep it simple so we can easily copy into the newsletter.
  • Notice I am typing DOWN the page (to the margin), and there is just a space between the name and the amount
  • Also notice there is no space between the category name (Classes, etc.) and the first consultant name
  • NOTE: We will copy and paste just as you send it. So make sure you have them in the order you want them to appear, putting $ signs where appropriate, etc.

Here's an example.  Notice nothing fancy, just typed DOWN the page and ONE space between the consultant name and the amount:

Jane Doe $100
Betty Boop $100
Betty Boop $50

Jane Doe $300
Jane Doe $250
