Select H_EXPCMP from the bottom or left side menu.

The sheet is set up in the following order:

  • Table 1 - Contains the STR Host report, which was brought in from the HDATA5 sheet. 

  • Table 2 - Contains the data for Comparable One

  • Table 3 - Contains the information for Comparable Two
  • Table 4 - Contains the information for Comparable Three


STR Host Table

Step 1: Input the STR Host report data into HDATA5 

Step 2: Add the STR Host Rentals & Other Expense information.

Step 3: Input the Other Undistributed Expenses information.

Step 4: Review the Operating Comparables that have been created based on the data from the STR Host report. 

Step 5: Describe the summary and call out anything that needs additional attention for the reader's understanding


Comparable Tables

Step 1: Identify each Comparable's Room Count, Occupancy, and ADR.

Step 2: Enter the Nominal dollar amount for each chart of accounts within each Comparable 

Step 3: Describe the summary and call out anything that needs additional attention for the reader's understanding


Adding the Tables to your Report (if not already added).

A few options exist for adding the table(s) to your word report. 

  1. All four tables added as one table
  2. Add each table individually
    1. Use the Insert Link feature in the Word Report to insert the table using the table names at the bottom of each table.
      1. HIA_HostExpCopm
      2. HIA_ExpCompTable1
      3. HIA_ExpCompTable2
      4. HIA_ExpCompTable

  1. Add all three comparable tables as one table
    1. Unhide the column to the left of Comparable One, and copy and paste the field labels displayed in the STR Host table.


Pro tip: Change the color of the text from white to black to view.  



Step 1: Unhide the sheets (right-click on the sheets at the bottom and select unhide) and navigate to HDATA5

Step 2: Copy and paste the Smith Travel Host Report report page into the HDATA5 sheet. This will update the first table from the Expense Comparable Data Presentation: STR Host Limited Service 2020 accordingly.

Pro-tip: This sheet is set up to be very flexible. You can rename the fields in the STR Host Limited Service table to match the field name on HDATA5 if our default names are not precisely matched. 


Once you have completed all necessary information in the Expense Comparable Datasheet, you can move on to the Income and Expenses sheet in the Hospitality Workbook.
