Creating a new spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel takes only a matter of moments. If the user already has a workbook up and running in Excel, press shift+F11 to create a new spreadsheet for that workbook.

Alternately, click on the tab to the right of existing worksheets to create a new worksheet. If the user needs to create a new spreadsheet from scratch, simply open Microsoft Excel. The default settings of the program automatically opens a new worksheet every time the application runs. From there, type or paste in all pertinent information in the applicable cells provided to create the spreadsheet.
