Spreadsheet programs are used for maintaining tables and different registers, for data analysis and for calculation. You can also create graphs with spreadsheet programs, e.g. bar charts or pie charts. In this section, we will look at the following features:
- creating a spreadsheet and entering data
- spreadsheet formatting
- cell references and common calculations
- creating graphs from spreadsheet data
These features will be presented with the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet program, but you can apply the instructions to other programs, like Open Office Calc.
