What is Microsoft Excel?
Microsoft Excel is software that is usually included in the Microsoft Office productivity suite. The software installs the spreadsheet component of the MS Office suite. With a spreadsheet app, the user can create a database; create tables and graphs, and a worksheet for budgets, tracking finances, task lists, and sales reports.
The application comes pre-installed with templates to help the user get started with their Excel project. Users can choose from the following templates: Billing Statement, Blood Pressure Tracker, Expense Report, Loan Amortization, Personal Monthly Budget, Sales Report and Time Card.
In addition to the pre-installed templates, users also have the option to use templates that are available on the Web, through the Microsoft Office Online. This option is also available from the Templates menu, which automatically displays when the user opens the New option from the dropdown menu under File.
Under the Microsoft Office Online category, several choices are provided: Featured, Agendas, Budgets, Calendars, Expense Reports, Forms, Inventories, Invoices, Lists and Planners. When one of these is selected, the application will automatically search online for the corresponding template. This being said, the computer needs to be connected to the Internet in order to take advantage of the online service.
