Spreadsheets are used to work with financial information. Spreadsheet charts are laid out in numbered rows and lettered columns. Where the row and column intersect is called a cell. The cell is referred to by the letter and number of the intersection called the cell address. The first cell in a chart is at the intersection of column A and row 1 and is referred to as Cell A1.
When working with numbers in a spreadsheet refer to the cell addresses when creating mathematical formulas. This is because any changes you make to a single cell will be automatically update without having to reenter the numbers in the rest of the cells.
Use the plus sign (+) to add; the minus (-) sign to subtract; the asterix (*) to multiply; and the back slash (/) to divide.
Spreadsheets use formulas to create simple to complex mathematical equations. A sheet can be built to handle the financial needs of businesses.
Most of the standard editing features are available in the spreadsheet such as Bold, Italics, Underline, Move, Copy and Paste.
Information from a spreadsheet can be displayed in chart form.
Most spreadsheet programs include templates to handle many of the average financial needs of a home user or small business. These templates can be modified or customized to personalize them for your own needs.
Most modern spreadsheet programs allow users to work on many sheets at once and access information from any of the sheets in the workbook group.
