What is a Spreadsheet?

Do you need to keep track of something? A spreadsheet can help! A spreadsheet is a computer application or program (example: Microsoft Excel), that simulates an accounting workbook. It contains cells that make up a grid of rows and columns which can be formatted to user preferences. Spreadsheets are typically used for financial information because they have the ability to calculate or recalculate an entire sheet automatically after a change is made to the information.
