One problem with using a spreadsheet or database is that it is difficult to set-up an "audit trail" and
even if you do then it's unlikely to be trusted by anyone else that might need to see your accounts. That is the
advantage with using proper software developed for the purpose or for using pen&ink (ie so you can't rub-out
entries without it being noticeable) to keep proper records.
If you don't have an accountant or auditor or present the accounts to anyone else then of course a
database might be a LOT better than a spreadsheet, if you are at all familiar with database

The easiest thing is probably to select one cell, select FOOD, hit Ctrl+c,
select all the other cells in which you want the word FOOD (using Ctrl or
Shift), hit Ctrl+v.
Thanks much for the tip. It's fast enough.
How about using GnuCash?
Thanks for the idea. I know about GnuCash, but it's a bit too feature-rich
just to compute how much money I spend on what, and besides my bank no
longer provides data in CSV but rather as PDF :-/
A database will also do what you want to do. Queries will provide you with the information
you need. I use such a database. One query tells me the balance of all my financial accounts (9 of
them). Two queries break down my expenses into budget categories; one is for the present month, and
the second is for the previous month. This way I can compare expenses for the two month by
category. Both queries have a column for the budgeted amounts for each category as well.
