    Sounds like a homework question. Do you have a specific business scenario where this is needed? Usually they are for storing and presenting data.

    Agreed. Sounds like homework.

    Why don't you try to answer it yourself?

    You know what a spreadsheet is, right? Think of Excel.

    Sorry it is not possible to reply for your assignment. It is better to buy some good books and increase your knowledge then write your assignment. This way you can gain solid knowledge and it will help to build your bright future.

    This question is really opened ended because the two systems are related and also very far apart. I have seen spreadsheets used for tracking things like a database is used for, and I databases used to track numbers and calculate data in accounting. In a lot of cases when you are connecting to an online store, you are actually connecting to a database, but it doesn't not really show. You connect to the online store, you query the store to find your object and it either finds the object from the internal database with all related information or returns a not found. If you decide to purchase the item, the queried information is then transferred to another form and the information count is reduced by one in the inventory, and so on. Spreadsheets can do the same feature but they are far more limited as to their functionality and can store far fewer records. For the most part spreadsheets are used in accounting because they usually are storing far fewer records in them. and their sorting features are more limited. Both are used though for reporting information.

    I use spreadsheets for cataloging my music and videos. Then I can set up filters of column data to only show related data. So if I'm in the mood for a comedy movie I don't have to search thru all my titles just to find the ones I defined as funny. Do you have specific concerns as how to use one for your needs? If so provide some details on the data involved.
