IP Address Spreadsheet Template

In this article, I’ll provide you with a simple IP address management spreadsheet to track network and IP usage.

Tracking IP addresses with a spreadsheet works well when you have small networks or for tracking something verify specific. When you have many networks and several DHCP pools you should really look into using IP Address Management Software.

Even if you are using an IPAM there are times when using a spreadsheet can be useful. When I was a network manager we started with a spreadsheet and eventually moved to IPAM. We still used a spreadsheet to give a quick overview of VLANs, routes, and networks.

IP Address Management Spreadsheet Template

Here is a simple template to track the IP addresses in a subnet.

You can use the link below to download the template or you can create the template in Excel by adding the following column headers.

  • IP Address
  • Subnet Mask
  • Status
  • Description
  • DNS
  • MAC Addresses

You can of course add or remove any fields you need.

I also included a CIDR cheat sheet with the download. This comes in useful to quickly look up the subnet mask, CIDR, and the number of available addresses in a subnet.

Tip #1

If you have a large network like a /16 you might not want to list every available IP address, that would be 65,536 rows in the spreadsheet. Instead, just enter the start and end IP addresses and then only add an entry for used IP addresses. If an IP is not listed that would mean it is available.

In the above example, you can see I’ve only entered IP addresses that are in use.

Tip #2

I recommend creating separate templates for each network you want to track, like the screenshot below.

Each one of these networks has multiple VLANs and subnets, so trying to put all of this into a single spreadsheet would get messy.

I keep everything related to a single network in the same Excel file. For example, I keep all networks in in the same spreadsheet.

Then for network I’ll create a separate spreadsheet.

That is it. Just keep it simple and a spreadsheet should work just fine.

  1. Robert,

    FYI, CIDR cheat sheet is not included in the download.

      I fixed the download to include the CIDR sheet. Thanks
