A spreadsheet is a computer application that is used for the organization and analysis of data in tabular form. A spreadsheet is a file that is made of rows and columns that help sort data, arrange data easily, and calculate numerical data.

A spreadsheet software program takes the ability to calculate values using mathematical formulas and the data in cells. Some of the case uses, which can include any use of numbers, can include finance, forms, school and grades, lists, sports tracking, statistics, and more.

Some examples of spreadsheet programs include Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets, iWork Numbers, LibreOffice, Lotus 1-2-3, Lotus Symphony, OpenOffice, and VisiCalc. These programs differ from word processors in that spreadsheets are capable of multiplying numbers and have a value of the calculation immediately appear. They can hide data, show data, sort information, and process large amounts of information.

Data in the electronic document is arranged in the rows and columns of a grid and can be manipulated and utilized for calculations.
