Microsoft's Excel 97

The Excel user interface is divided into three major sections:


Spreadsheet Design

Excel workbooks are organized as rows, columns and sheets. These can be visualized as a tablet of grid paper. You can put anything you want in any cell on any sheet in the tablet, but you can't put more than one thing in a cell at a time. To enter something in a cell, simply use the mouse to point to the cell, type the desired information, then press the Enter key. To move between sheets, simply click on the tabs at the bottom of the screen.
