Microsoft Excel is a powerful application that is mostly used for spreadsheet management. Just like other spreadsheet software, the vast majority of the interface is based on its paper equivalent that is used for accounting; the spreadsheet itself is a grid of tiny boxes which are called cells. This is where you can enter your data such as numbers, text and even formulas that allow you to perform calculations and keep track of things easier, as they update in real time while you edit your document. You can also filter and sort your data, make tables and colourful charts that allow you to visualise your information for easier understanding in many different ways.
Because Excel is a part of the Microsoft Office suite, it allows you to work together with other software from Microsoft with ease. This allowed Excel to become an industry standard spreadsheet application because even large businesses can take advantage of its professional features alongside other Office applications such as Word and PowerPoint which are equally beloved by people all over the globe due to their incredible capabilities.
