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.
