For example if a table is listing monthly sales in one column and cumulative sales for the year in the next column, then the cumulative sales for any month can be calculated as addition of entry in the cumulative sale column for the previous month plus entry for sale column in the current month. The spreadsheets are also very convenient for analysis requiring use of a string of entries in a particular column or row.
