The Excel spreadsheet an investment banker kept on the 12 women he was dating or wanted to date has gone viral after he mistakenly sent the document to one of the women.

The New York Post reported that David Merkur, 28, ranked the women on a scale of one to 10 and made comments on their personalities and appearance in the meticulously constructed document.

Eight of the women he met on and four the associate director at finance firm Ladder Capital met through friends and family.

The color co-ordinated spreadsheet is broken down into several categories including user name, real name, age, profile picture, online appearance ranking, initial notes, contact information, timeline of communication, date status and date comments, ABC News reported.

Appearance rankings for all remained 7 or above.

The column for "initial date status" is color-coded with some of the women's dates in red, meaning "Monitor closely (bold = ASAP)," and others in green, meaning the date is upcoming. 

In “Initial Date Comments” category pertaining to one, he wrote: "OK girl, but very jappy (slang for Jewish American Princess); one and done for me."

Of another, he wrote: "Mixed bag of pictures, but great bod; works in my building, also in finance; well traveled; lives on LES." 

For Liliana, who scored a 9.5, he initially wrote: "Looks beautiful; from coastal Romania; Chanel make-up artist." However, he later notes that her old boyfriend "might be back in the picture."

Merkur told the Post that his spreadsheet system backfired after he told a 26-year-old date, named Arielle, about it and she asked to see it.

"Well ... this could be a mistake, but what the hell," he wrote in an email to her. "I thought about deleting the names, but figured I might as well give you the whole thing. I only deleted the non-Match people's names since some I’ve known for a long time.

"I hope this e-mail doesn’t backfire, because I really had a great time and hope to hang again soon :) However, I will keep my word! Have a great weekend!"

Arielle, whom Merkur described in his spreadsheet as “very pretty, sweet & down to earth” with a “great personality,” of course emailed the spreadsheet to her friends.

"Wanted to pass this on to you for some monday morning entertainment," she wrote. "I went on a date with this guy last wednesday. On the date, he tells me that he has a spreadsheet for tracking all of the people from Match that are 'in process'. Naturally, I tease him and ask him to send me the spreadsheet.
