Executive Summary

Excel is a widely used spreadsheet developed by Microsoft. Although used widely by business professionals, it can be very useful to the engineer as well. An excellent paperback book which highlights the engineering use of Excel is, "Spreadsheet Tools for Engineers", B.S. Gottfried, McGraw-Hill. Think of a spreadsheet as a table (the worksheet) containing cells. Each cell has a column-row address such as A1 (column A, row 1) or B7 (column B, row 7). Cells have contents; either text or numbers (data) or formulas. The power of a spreadsheet is one can update the data and the formula cells will automatically update their calculation.
