Manual:Worksheets and Data tables/Creating a new worksheet
Creating a new worksheet
When you create a new worksheet, you can decide either to create an empty worksheet or a standard worksheet. The standard worksheet already contains to numeric columns, ‘A’ and ‘B’, with ‘A’ being the ‘X’-column and ‘B’ the ‘V’-column.
Note: If you intend to import data into the worksheet, you should create an empty worksheet and import the data afterwards. If you want to enter data manually, and are happy with two numeric columns, you should opt for the standard worksheet.
There are four ways to create a worksheet (either empty or standard)
- From the ‘File menu’: choose File->New->Empty Worksheet to create an empty worksheet or File->New->Standard Worksheet to create a standard worksheet
- From the toolbar: see Figure below
- From the context menu of the project explorer: see Figure below
- From a keyboard shortcut: Ctrl-E to create an empty worksheet, Ctrl-W to create a standard worksheet
If you use the context menu of the project explorer, the new worksheet is created in the folder that is currently open, which is the folder ‘Foo\’ in the figure above. With all other methods, the new worksheet is created in the root folder of the project.
