Document/Workbook WindowJust below the application window is
the document or workbook window.
This is the window where the spreadsheet information will
appear. If this window is not maximized, the top of this window also contains a
document title bar which will display the filename. Below the title bar is a
grid matrix area where information will be displayed or entered. There is a
vertical scroll bar on the right margin, a horizontal scroll bar at the bottom
right, and sheet tab controls at the bottom left. Each of these items is listed
and described below.
- Title Bar
- This will only appear if the document window is not maximized. It displays
the workbook (file) name. The name on a blank application would be Book1,
Book2, etc., depending on how many windows are open. You can click on this
title bar and drag it to move the window. The control menu box is at the left
end and the
and maximize buttons are on the right end. (The minimize and maximize
buttons look different on Windows 3.1.)
- Workbook Page
- Contains the grid matrix of cells (defined below) where the spreadsheet
information will be entered or found. The column headings are referenced by
alphabetic characters and the rows are referenced by numbers found on the
left. The area where the column letters and row numbers are found is called
- Scroll Bars
- The scroll bars are used to view different parts of the spreadsheet. You
use the vertical scroll bar at the right margin to move vertically or the
horizontal scroll bar at the bottom right to move horizontally.
- Sheet Tabs and Scrolling Buttons
- Tabs appear at the bottom of the document window with names of Sheet1,
Sheet2, Sheet3, etc. (Refer to the diagram above.) You can go to another sheet
by clicking on a different tab. Also, the scrolling buttons appear to the left
of the tabs; they allow you to scroll more quickly through the sheets.
