Workbook

By

Definition:

A workbook is a spreadsheet file. By default, each workbook in Excel contains three pages or worksheets.

The term spreadsheet is often used to refer to a workbook, when in actual fact, spreadsheet refers to the computer program, such as Excel.

So, strictly speaking, when you open the Excel spreadsheet program it loads an empty workbook file consisting of three blank worksheets for you to use.

Examples:
In the last step of the Chart Wizard, there are only two choices for where you can place your chart - on the same sheet as the data in a workbook, or on a separate sheet from your data in the same workbook.
