Understanding Workbooks and Worksheets

Excel enables you to create and edit workbooks. A workbook holds one or more worksheets (sometimes called spreadsheets or just sheets). A worksheet is a collection of rows and columns that holds text and numbers. Anytime you create, open, or save an Excel file, you are working with a workbook. The workbook approach keeps you from having multiple files that relate to the same project—instead, you can have all worksheets related to the same project in the same workbook (in one *.xls file). Your workbook name is the Excel name you assign when you save a file. You can save Excel worksheets and workbooks in HTML format if you want to maintain file-type consistency and if you ever want to embed your data in a Web page.

As with Word data, Excel often uses the term document to refer to a workbook file.
