There are lots of spreadsheet packages. What you will want to get depends on what features you need, how much you are willing to spend and what operating system you are using. Google Sheets is free and has most of the basic spreadsheet features, and is accessible online (and you can use your Google Sheets offline too). Microsoft Excel comes as part of the Microsoft Office suite and is one of the most commonly used spreadsheet packages. OpenOffice is free, can run on Linux-based systems, and consumes less memory than Microsoft Office. Lotus 1–2–3 was one of the first and most widely used spreadsheet packages back in the 80’s-90’s but it has been overtaken by Microsoft Excel in terms of popularity.
Common word processing programs such as Microsoft Word and Google Docs include a set of commands for creating blank tables, entering data in tabular format and adjusting the overall appearance of the table. The overall size of the table, in terms of the number of rows and columns, is typically constrained by the size of the printed page on which the table will appear. Word processors can also carry out simple commands such as finding the sum of all numbers in an individual column.
