What are the Different Types of Spreadsheets?

Google Sheets is an online spreadsheet app that lets you create and format spreadsheets and work with other people. The steps to create a new google spreadsheet are:

Step 1: Create a Spreadsheet
To create a new spreadsheet, you need to:

  • Open the Sheets home screen at sheets.google.com.
  • Click New Add. This will create and open your new spreadsheet.

Step 2: Edit and format a spreadsheet.
You can add, edit, or format text, numbers, or formulas in a spreadsheet.

  • Edit and format a spreadsheet
  • Use formulas and functions in a spreadsheet.

In Excel, the worksheet consists of a grid of columns and rows that form cells. You enter three types of data in cells: labels, values, and formulas. Labels (text) are descriptive pieces of information, such as names, months, or other identifying statistics, and they usually include alphabetic characters. You can also use formulas to insert data into the sheet. A formula is an expression that calculates the value of a cell. Functions are predefined formulas and are already available in Excel. For example, cell A3 below contains a formula that adds the value of cell A2 to the value of cell A1. In creating invoices or receipts these formulas can help you generate results automatically.

Step 3: Share & work with others and unshare when you need it.
You can share files and folders with people and choose whether they can view, edit, or comment on them.

  • Open a file in Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides. In the top right corner, click Share. Click "Get shareable link" in the top right of the "Share with others" box. To choose whether a person can view, comment, or edit the file, click the Down arrow next to Anyone with the link.
  • Click from your list of documents the name of the document that you want to unshare. Click the blue "Share" button at the top right corner of the document and wait for the Sharing window to load. Click the "X" icon next to each user you no longer want to share the document with to remove them.
