Usually, spreadsheets are set up so that a row holds a record, or all of the information about one specific thing (like the information about a person); and columns holds the same kind of information for all of the records (like the ages of all the people in the spreadsheet). This format is also used for databases, which can be used to store, search through, and sort significant amounts of information.
