Spreadsheets have a never-ending number of rows and columns, which allows cells to be created as the input data increases. The date entered by the user in the cells are static, but become dynamic when formulas are used.
Cells support absolute cell referencing, which allows them to be invoked individually using their cell column name and row number appended with a "$" sign.
