Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet application that incorporates tools for assisting in the recording and analysis of numerical data and which has the ability of turning numerical data into charts. This functionality, combined with many powerful and sophisticated features allow the creation, manipulation, editing, printing and storage of workbooks.
