When you create a workbook, Excel includes a worksheet
named Sheet1. If you add worksheets, they are named Sheet2,
Sheet3, and so on. Those names are fine when you first create
a workbook, but after you add data to several worksheets,
naming the sheet tabs helps you and your colleagues find the
data that you’re looking for. As always, if you think of a better
name for your worksheets or want to change the name of a
worksheet temporarily to make it stand out, you can rename a
worksheet any time that you want.
