What is a Google Spreadsheet 2013

What is a Google Spreadsheet and how is it different from an Excel Spreadsheet?

A Google Spreadsheet is a spreadsheet document creating using Google Drive / Google Docs.

Generally, a Google Spreadsheet is created and shared in Google format and a Google account is required to view and edit the document.

What should I do if I receive a Google Spreadsheet but don’t have a Google account?

If a Google Spreadsheet is sent to you, you have two options in regards to viewing and editing the spreadsheet:

  1. Create a Google account and login to access the spreadsheet.
  2. Ask the sender to convert the spreadsheet into a format that is compatible with your software (Excel, Open Office, .txt)

As discussed in the embedded video below, Google Spreadsheets are easily converted into many other spreadsheet formats such as:

  1. Microsoft Excel (.xlsx)
  2. Open Office Spreadsheet (.odf)
  3. Rich Text File (.rtf)
  4. Normal Text File (.txt)
  5. PDF
