What is a Spreadsheet? A spreadsheet is used for storing information and data. Calculations can be performed on the data in a spreadsheet. Microsoft Excel is the most common spreadsheet application, although there are other spreadsheets available.

Parts of a Spreadsheet This is a COLUMN. Columns are labelled with letters.

Parts of a Spreadsheet This is a ROW Rows are labelled with numbers.

Parts of a Spreadsheet This is a CELL Each cell has a unique CELL REFERENCE

Parts of a Spreadsheet The CELL REFERENCE of this cell is E4

Parts of a Spreadsheet The cell that you are currently clicked in is called the ACTIVE CELL. It has a thick black line around it. Any text you type will go in this cell.

Parts of a Spreadsheet A LABEL is a piece of TEXT that you add to a spreadsheet to help describe the numbers.

Parts of a Spreadsheet These are all LABELS.

Parts of a Spreadsheet A VALUE is a NUMBER that you type into a spreadsheet. It is a number that you already know.
