A spreadsheet program is a software application that organises information (data) into a grid or table of columns and rows.

The data can then be analysed using mathematical formula that relates one cell to another cell or group of cells.

The data can also be sorted, filtered and copied.

Producing a spreadsheet document is viewed as a basic skill that all workers are now expected to have.

The skill level that will be expected of you will depend on the position you hold but at least basic skills are expected in modern business.
