5e Excel Character Sheet


This is a simple 5e character sheet for Excel. There are other 5e Excel character sheets available on the internet with higher levels of complexity. Some of them behave almost like character generators. This is not one of those character sheets. This sheet calculates ability modifiers, passive Perception, saving throws, skill bonuses, and that's about it. The rest is up to you to enter manually.

The download is in .zip format and contains one unpopulated character sheet and one of a 3rd level wood elf druid as an example of how the sheet can be used. Both sheets were created in Excel 2007, but they should work in other versions of Excel as well. There is no cell protection enabled in either spreadsheet.

I realize there is a lot more that could be done with formulas to increase automation, but I prefer to keep things simple. If you enjoy Excel and want to make additions or modifications, go for it. If you come up with something nice, make it available here so I can check it out!

Hey you may want to change the functions for determining the ability scores. Currently, you use ROUNDDOWN which makes it so that if you have an ability score below 10 it actually ends up rounding up. You may want to change it to FLOOR and change the second factor to 1, which is what I did to get it to work for me.

This is the thing that I saw that explained how to do it for me in case I didn't explain it clearly:

I thought I fixed this years ago using the INT function, but it looks like I only did it for the Wood_ElF_Druid.xls example file and not the 5E_Excel_Character_Sheet.xls file. Sorry about that. I've uploaded a corrected .zip file.

Excellent work! Very useful, easy to edit, plus does some of the work for me. A lot of character sheets online are overly complicated and fancy, but this is perfectly simple. Thanks!

Hey there! Love your character sheet but I just one question: how do you get the proficiency bonus to apply to skills and saving throws?

Customer avatar
Dave Z December 11, 2019 3:28 am UTC
All you should need to do is click the box next to the skill or saving throw. Once that is complete, it should add the bonus to the result.

This is solid gold! Is there anyone out there that's converted the sheet to non-US (A4) size?
Thanks heaps

I'd rate the product, but I purchased it off a different account so I'll put my "review" here. In my opinion this is a very nice excel sheet. I wanted to make this review since Alexander M. called it a joke. I'm actually glad it is not completely automated. It makes setting this up for a homebrew MUCH easier and I don't have to fight automated values when making characters that don't follow some of the core rules of D&D.

I'd give it a 5/5 stars, and compared to other excel sheets this sheet is very clean and pleasing to the eye.

In reply to the review by Alexander M.

I’m sorry the character sheet doesn’t fit your needs. The sheet actually does calculate ability modifiers, passive Perception, saving throws, and skill bonuses. It was not designed to calculate anything else. The product’s description is very clear about the level of automation it contains.

If the cells listed above are not calculating properly for you, please let me know what version of Excel you are using, and I will do my best to test it and correct any issues.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
