# Cell Structure and Function Worksheet Answers Chapter 3

In the first chapter of the Worksheet Answers series, we discussed how to figure out your cell structure and function. In this chapter, we are going to take a look at a couple of answers that will help you figure out where in the body of the worksheet your cell is located. With that information, you can know exactly where in the body of the worksheet you need to enter your data.

To determine your cell structure and function, you need to know what the typical layout is for a cell in a worksheet. The most common layout would be one column for each row. It would also be a four-cell vertical alignment. The other layouts include slant cells, a diagonal column, and a two-cell horizontal alignment.

Knowing the typical cell structure is just the first step. In order to determine the range of cells in a row or column, you will need to know the range of cells in your worksheet. In Excel 97 and earlier versions, you need to use the flat (left-to-right) version of the formulas that you select by dragging them. Now, you use the item view with the follow option called Offset range. This option lets you calculate a range from the beginning of the sheet to the beginning of the workbook.

As an example, we will use this formula in order to calculate the location of the cell in a row and in a column: =OFFSET(A2: A5, B2: B5) Note that you can place the Offset range on a sheet to make it easier to do this. Here is what the formula will look like:

Let’s say that we have a cell in a row and a cell in a column. After running the formula in Excel 97, we will see that the range is calculated from the beginning of the sheet. The reason why this happens is because the first cell in the row and the first cell in the column are the first cell that you start with the worksheet. So when you run the formula, the cell location is calculated from the beginning of the sheet.

For the worksheet below, we will start with the first worksheet on our computer. We will type in the formula and then type in the row and the column. After doing this, we can open Excel and see the cell location for the first worksheet.
