    When you open Excel you will see a worksheet that looks like a sheet of
    graph paper with rows and columns of rectangular boxes. You can do just
    about anything with these boxes.

    You can think of each box as a "pigeonhole" in an old timey mail sorting
    office. You can put anything in these boxes: text, formulas, phone numbers,
    whatever.

    Each "box" ("cell" in Excel nomenclature) is identified by a unique address
    (like your home's street address) comprised of its row number and column
    number. The row number is the number of the row from the top of the page
    that the cell is in. The column number is the number of the column from the
    left of the page that the cell is in; usually the columns use an
    alphabetical identification, not numerical.

    Try opening Excel and check it out.

    even more simply,the rows are the horizontal lines of cells on the page or
    sheet.The columns are the vertical stacks of boxes on the sheet.As fred said
    each box has its own address and each sheet has its own name.using the basic
    row number column number and sheet number every box can be "seen" from any
    other box,in the book.A book or workbook is made up of several sheets.You can
    even link seperate books!
