The default name for the a new sheet is “SheetX”, where X is a number. While this works for a small spreadsheet with only a few sheets, it becomes awkward when there are many sheets.
To give a sheet a more meaningful name, you can:
- Enter the name in the name box when you create the sheet, or
- Right-click on a sheet tab and select Rename Sheet from the popup menu and replace the existing name with a better one.
|| Sheet names must start with either a letter or a number; other characters including spaces are not allowed. Aside from the first character of the sheet name, allowed characters are letters, numbers, spaces, and the underline character. Attempting to rename a sheet with an invalid name will produce an error message.
