Part 7. Getting Started with Excel

Part 7. Getting Started with Excel

When you start the application, Excel displays a blank workbook. A workbook is a file in which you store your data, similar to a three-ring binder. Within a workbook are worksheets, chart sheets, and macro sheets. A new workbook contains three sheets, named Sheet1 through Sheet3. You can add sheets, up to 255 per workbook, depending on your computer's available memory.

Multiple sheets help you organize, manage, and consolidate your data. For example, you might want to create a sales forecast for the first quarter of the year. Sheet1, Sheet2, and Sheet3 could contain worksheet data for January, February, and March; Sheet4 could be a summary for the three months of sales data; and Sheet5 could be a chart showing sales over the three-month period.
