As someone who is on such Boards, we get reports which are in spreadsheet 
form. I open them in Open Office, but I think some persons use other software.
Each month the report gets wider by one more column until the twelfth month of 
the financial year when we usually have EIGHTEEN columns
and that is without any notes as mentioned by Mike.
The spreadsheet is the best form of presentation of the data in the report.

The electrician didn't know what the yellow cable was so he yanked the 
ethernet out.
