Get ready to create a spreadsheet

Now, you might be in one of four different situations, depending on whether you've been following along or not. Choose the situation you're in and follow the directions:

  1. You just finished the database exercise and that file is still on your screen.

    1. Save this file once again: press Command S.

    2. Click in its little close box in the upper-left corner, or use the keyboard shortcut Command W (W for Window).

    3. Click the Spreadsheet button in the toolbar: or .

  2. You finished the database exercise, saved and closed it, and didn't quit AppleWorks. In the far right corner of the menu bar, you see the word AppleWorks (or ClarisWorks) and a tiny icon ().

    • You are exactly where you need to be! Click the Spreadsheet button in the toolbar: or.

  3. You finished the database exercise, saved and closed it, and did not quit AppleWorks. BUT in the far right corner of the menu bar, you see a tiny icon of the Macintosh logo ().

    1. Click once on that little happy Mac icon to get the Application menu, as shown to the left.

    2. If you didn't actually quit AppleWorks, you will see its name listed in the Application menu. Select it.

    3. After you select AppleWorks, you will see the toolbar across the top. Click the Spreadsheet button: or .


      This is the Application menu. The checkmark indicates what is active, or open, at the moment.


  4. You skipped the database exercise, or you turned off your computer and came back later, and AppleWorks is not open on your iMac.

    1. Open AppleWorks just like you did the first time: double-click the application icon (it's inside the AppleWorks folder).

    2. AppleWorks 5: Double-click "Spreadsheet."

      AppleWorks 6: Single-click "Spreadsheet."
