Spreadsheets are often used for decision making, financial analysis, budgeting, and inventory management. When working in Excel, the document you create is called a workbook. Each workbook is made up of individual worksheets.

The cell shown here is cell A1. Use your arrow keys or click your mouse to select cells in the spreadsheet. Using multiple sheets will help organize all the different parts of your workbook. There is no reason to put everything on a single sheet. When you open a new workbook, the first sheet, Sheet1, will be active. To access other sheets, simply click on the sheet tabs near the bottom of the screen. Right now were just re-naming and re-ordering sheets, but copying sheets will come in handy too, especially if you plan on having several sheets with the same format. Just format one and then make as many copies as you needit will save you a lot of typing. Just like when you move a sheet, to copy a sheet, right click on the sheet tab and select Move or Copy. Decide where you want the copy to go, and then theres an extra step: Make sure to check the Create A Copy box before you click OK.
