A spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel is specifically designed for creating, managing and presenting information in tabular format. A new spreadsheet is simply a large table with blank cells in which the user can enter information.

For example, spreadsheets can convert data in tabular format to detailed pie charts, line charts or other types of graphs.
