In Excel for example you can use VB code to manipulate certain things within the rows/columns and objects or even work with external data sources to import data and display it on the sheet. For example here is a simple bit of code to press a button on the sheet, bring up a dialog box where the user inputs a new sheet name and then a log is written in the spreadsheet of when the name was last changed and to what value. Here I am using 2003 Excel.
