- 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.

How to Google Sheets with Non-Google users?
Docs, Slides, and Drawings can be shared outside your domain to users who do not have a Google account, therefore they will not be required to sign in to view the file. The Docs sharing settings window will not display any users who have viewed your file without signing in with a Google account.
What is the difference between Google Sheets and Excel?
Google Docs is probably the most easily manageable alternative to Excel. It looks similar to Excel's layout and has pretty much the same features, except that it's free for all Google account owners (if you have a Gmail account, you also have access to Google Docs).
Is there a Desktop version for Google Sheets or Docs?
No, Google does not offer a desktop version of either Docs or Sheets that would run outside of a browser. But there might be some third-party applications that could do that, but seeking them here amounts to an app recommendation request, which is off-topic.
