Spreadsheet Software

There are several spreadsheet software packages available. The most famous one is Microsoft Excel.

However, if you do not have Excel, you should download another spreadsheet software.

I recommend you download OpenOffice, which includes a spreadsheet (Calc), a writing and a presentation software, similar to Microsoft's Excel, Word and Powerpoint from
OpenOffice recognizes Word (doc/docx), Excel (xls), Powerpoint (ppt), rtf and other formats.

Here are some links to tutorials on Excel.
