A cell contains either a constant value or a formula that is

determines how to display the value. A cell can be part of a
range. A cell is usually referred to by its column
(labelled by one or more letters from the sequence A, B, ...,
Z, AA, AB, ..., AZ, BA, BB, ..., BZ, ... ) and its row number
counting up from one, e.g. cell B3 is in the second column
across and the third row down. A cell also belongs to a
particular sheet, e.g. "Sheet 1".
