A macro-enabled spreadsheet is also available to specifically assist Applicant Contacts who create plans with multiple owners corporations.

Maintaining your OC data in the macro spreadsheet ensures you only need to make changes in one place, which should help to reduce errors or omissions. The spreadsheets that are ultimately uploaded to SPEAR are automatically generated from this master spreadsheet and a date/time stamp is added to each.

For any specific help in using this macro spreadsheet please contact the SPEAR service desk.
