What is Microsoft Excel?
Microsoft Excel is a helpful and powerful program for data analysis and documentation. It is a spreadsheet program, which contains a number of columns and rows, where each intersection of a column and a row is a “cell.” Each cell contains one point of data or one piece of information. By organizing the information in this way, you can make information easier to find, and automatically draw information from changing data. With Excel on your PC, Mac, or mobile device, you can:
Create spreadsheets from scratch, or a template.
Organize numbers and data
- Calculate data with formulas
- Filter out extra information
Access your Microsoft Excel documents from a computer, tablet, or phone with OneDrive.
Share your documents and work with others.
Track and review changes.
