into a Cell
Your first step when building a spreadsheet is usually
to enter the text data that defines the spreadsheet’s
labels or headings. Most labels appear in the cell to
the right or above where the data will appear, while
most headings appear at the top of a column of data
or to the left of a row of data.
Note, however, that you do not have to use text for
just labels and headings. You can also enter text as
data, such as a database of book or movie names.
You can also write short notes that explain sections
of the worksheet, and add reminders to yourself or
others about missing data or other worksheet to-do
