 A spreadsheet is a computer application that simulates a paper, accounting worksheet. Calc spreadsheet

A spreadsheet is a computer application that simulates a paper, accounting worksheet.

It displays multiple cells usually in a two-dimensional matrix or grid consisting of rows and columns. Each cell contains alphanumeric text, numeric values or formulas. A formula defines how the content of that cell is to be calculated from the contents of any other cell (or combination of cells) each time any cell is updated.

Spreadsheets are frequently used for financial information because of their ability to re-calculate the entire sheet automatically after a change to a single cell is made.

A pseudo third dimension to the matrix is sometimes applied as another layer, or layers/sheets, of two-dimensional data. 

Lotus 1-2-3 was the leading spreadsheet when DOS was the dominant operating system. Excel now has the largest market share on the Windows and Macintosh platforms.

Paper spreadsheets

The word “spreadsheet” came from “spread” in its sense of a newspaper or magazine item (text and/or graphics) that covers two facing pages, extending across the center fold and treating the two pages as one large one.

The compound word “spread-sheet” came to mean the format used to present book-keeping ledgers—with columns for categories of expenditures across the top, invoices listed down the left margin, and the amount of each payment in the cell where its row and column intersect—which were, traditionally, a “spread” across facing pages of a bound ledger (book for keeping accounting records) or on oversized sheets of paper ruled into rows and columns in that format and approximately twice as wide as ordinary paper.

Crabby Office Lady goes chart crazy with Excel 2007 Crabby Office Lady

Summing up large quantities of information used to be time-consuming and daunting if you were unfamiliar with how to put it all together, particularly if you had to do it with a chart. Excel 2007 has made such huge improvements in the area of charts that you may find yourself making all sorts of charts for no apparent reason…other than it’s fun.

Below is an example of the chart I created for data I looked at for the months of August 2006, September 2006, and October 2006.

Charts make data visual. Instead of having to analyze columns of worksheet numbers, you can see at a glance what the data means.
