Excel is a spreadsheet program from Microsoft, a component of its Office product group for business applications. In common with similar products, such as Lotus 1-2-3 and Corel's QuattroPro, Excel is an automated version of the paper-based spreadsheet that makes it easier to manipulate, process, and view the data. Although Lotus 1-2-3 was reportedly the first spreadsheet to introduce cell names and macros, Excel implemented a graphical user interface and the ability to point and click using a mouse.
