- A spreadsheet can be viewed as a large matrix in which columns are typically designated by letters and rows by numbers. The intersection of a row and column defines a cell: a cell can contain a number, label, or formula that relates it to other cells in the spreadsheet. The ability to relate cells with formulae is what provides spreadsheets with their tremendous power. If the sp:readsheet model is constructed with formulae, a change in one or two numbers is immediately reflected throughout the spreadsheet [9].
