Spreadsheets 101

In a nutshell, Microsoft Excel (see Figure 17.1) is a spreadsheet application. You can use Excel to enter, manipulate, summarize, and analyze numbers for all sorts of situations. For example, you might use a spreadsheet to keep track of sales figures for different products in different sales regions. You might go a bit further and keep track of sales for individual salespeople, calculate their commissions, and generate weekly or monthly sales reports based on that information.
