In fact, each of these tabs has a drop-down list which features various functions that are all usable depending on what you’re creating in Excel.
  5. Learn and understand the language needed to use Excel: you will actually need to learn and know the terminologies used in Excel by following a step-by-step guide. For example; a row is section that runs from left to right across the workbook with some numbers allocated along left-side. A column is a set of data/lines that run from the top to the bottom of the workbook (worksheet) and it’s actually identified by a letter at the top-section of the sheet. A cell is an individual square (box) of the worksheet that can be filled in with data/information.

However, it’s highly recommended to save your work as you enter data inorder avoid making any data-losses.
