Spreadsheets, also called worksheets, allow for the creation and organization of tables and data. Most spreadsheet editing is now performed using computer software, such as Microsoft Excel or Apple Numbers. While you could feasibly create a spreadsheet for anything, there are certain types of spreadsheets commonly used to provide such versatility.
Spreadsheets often utilize arithmetic functions, such as automatically adding up all the values of one particular column. These functions are necessary for budget and invoice spreadsheets.
