Getting Acquainted with Excel
If you’ve spent any time in an Office application, much of the Excel screen
may look familiar to you. The buttons on the Home tab — the Bold and the
Align buttons, for example — work the same in Excel as they do in Word.
The Font and Font Size drop-down lists work the same as well. Any command
in Excel that has to do with formatting text and numbers works the same in
Excel and Word.
As mentioned earlier, an Excel file is a workbook. Each workbook comprises
one or more worksheets. A worksheet, also known as a spreadsheet, is a table
into which you enter data and data labels. Figure 1-2 shows a worksheet with
data about rainfall in different counties.
