Example: "The annual revenue is located in cell D21 of the company's financial spreadsheet."

A cell is a location in a spreadsheet defined by the intersection of a row and column. For example, cell C7 is the cell located in the seventh row of column C. Cells may contain several types of data, including numbers, dates, and text. Static cells contain data that is directly entered by the user. Dynamic cells contain formulas and display the result of calculations based on the content of other cells in the spreadsheet.
