How do I use Google spreadsheets?

Use Google Spreadsheets. Manipulate Data. In addition to storing and modeling data, spreadsheets can manipulate and analyze data sets. Most spreadsheet programs allow users to enter custom formulas, with a range of commonly used preset functions also available.

Introducing Excel’s Three Types of Spreadsheet Databases
  • Simple (or “Gray Cell”) Tables, which I’ve used since Excel 2.0.
  • Excel Tables, introduced in Excel 2007.
  • PivotTables with a Tabular Report Layout, introduced in Excel 2010.
There are 3 ways to create a new spreadsheet in Google Sheets:
  1. Click the red “NEW” button on your Google Drive dashboard and select “Google Sheets”
  2. Open the menu from within a spreadsheet and select “File > New Spreadsheet”
  3. Click “Blank” or select a template on the Google Sheets homepage.



A spreadsheet is an interactive computer application for organization, analysis and storage of data in tabular form. Spreadsheets are developed as computerized simulations of paper accounting worksheets. The program operates on data entered in cells of a table. Google Sheets is an online spreadsheet app that lets you create and format spreadsheets and work with other people.

Google SpreadsheetsGoogle Spreadsheets is a Web-based application that allows users to create, update and modify spreadsheets and share the data live online.



It is a spreadsheet program and mobile app, part of the free, great, easy-to-use Google products that compete principally with Microsoft Office products and are going to destroy Microsoft in the consumer market because they are free and better for most consumers.

It works like this: Google Sheets is spreadsheets, Google Docs is the word processor, Google Slides is the rudimentary presentation software, and Google Drive is the file management system that stores and organizes them all. All of these are separate mobile apps. All of them are free.

But for most people, who don’t need to multi-file mail merges between word documents, or don’t need to do hidden pivot tables and elaborate inter-tab formulas on spreadsheets, these are absolutely fine.

It’s amazing: last time I checked, Microsoft wanted to charge me a yearly subscription fee for the ability to edit its documents on my mobile phone. I assume that is on top of the several hundred dollars I paid for the original software licenses a few years ago (not sure; either way, it’s at least a few hundred bucks). I’m not sure how Microsoft plans to sustain that kind of madness for consumers when there is a free alternative that works for 95% of people.

You can configure this spreadsheet to include more rows, as needed.

I just pushed it to its limits just now and it threw up. Looks like the answer to your question is 400,000 cells.
