Doing the Basics: Workbooks

A workbook is simply the name for an Excel file. When you open Excel, clicking on Blank workbook will create a new Excel workbook for you to begin working with. You can also open an existing workbook, to pick up where you left off.

Starting a New Workbook

On the start page of Excel, in the ‘Home’ tab, you’ll find the option to create a new Blank Workbook in the top left corner.

You can also go to the ‘New’ tab on the left to find a variety of online templates that might help get you started.
