If you are managing more than a thousand IPs allocations 
spreadsheets are not manageable for IPv4.

I managed a /15, two /16s and several /24s (so, well 
over a quarter million IPs) on a spreadsheet for years.  
So, that's an 'it depends' answer.

Allocations, not IPs.  And yes if they are reasonably 
static an excel spreadsheet can go higher.

Yes, an "it depends" answer.  But I was well in excess 
of 1000 IPs.  Sure everyone's correct on the limits in 
a rapidly growing company with lots of churn, but I was 
responding to the "If you are managing more than a 
thousand IPs allocations spreadsheets are not manageable 
for IPv4" comment.
