Ribbon The ribbon, located near the top of the window below the title bar, is the control
center in Excel and other office apps (Figure 14). The ribbon provides easy, central access
to the tasks you perform while creating a document. The ribbon consists of tabs, groups,
and commands. Each tab contains a collection of groups, and each group contains related
commands. When you run an office app, such as Excel, it initially displays several main
tabs, also called default or top-level tabs. All office apps have a HOME tab, which contains
the more frequently used commands. When you run Excel, the ribbon displays eight main

VIEW. The FORMULAS and DATA tabs are specic to Excel. The FORMULAS tab
allows you to work with Excel formulas, and the DATA tab allows you to work with data
processing features such as importing and sorting data.
