Each table is converted to an Excel worksheet, and all other objects are placed on separate worksheets if there’s more than one table.

Here are ways to create an Excel version of your spreadsheet:

  • Choose Share > Export, and then click Excel.
    • Select Summary if you don’t want a summary worksheet included for multi-worksheet exports.
    • Select Next to specify a name and location for the file, and then click Export to create it.
  • Choose File > Save As, select “Save copy as,” and choose Excel Document from the pop-up menu.

Note: Some of the formula calculations may differ in Excel.
