sheet

v. (from ribbon tab naming in Excel 12)

  1. To create or use a spreadsheet.

“Sheet” started out being called “Enter Data” in Excel, as we tried to come up with a term which matched “Write” in spirit. But it was a long and clunky name, conflicted with the “Data” tab of Excel, and worst of all (in my opinion), it makes working with Excel sound like drudgery. —Jensen Harris, “There’s No Place Like Home”
