How to Convert Excel to Google Sheets
Microsoft Excel is useful for a lot of things in a closed environment. What I mean by that is if you’re in an office and all your computers are connected in a network, it’s a very powerful tool. However, since most modern jobs would require a team effort on spreadsheets, Google Sheets is a much better platform to use. But what if all your files are in MS Excel format and you want to move them to Google Sheets? Then you have to convert those files, and I’ll walk you through how to do it.

Requirements before Converting

If you’re new to using the Google Suite of apps, then you might not have a Google Drive yet.

Signing up is free and once you have a Google Drive, converting will be a piece of cake.

Create a Google Drive by going clicking here and clicking on sign up. You’ll unlock the Google suite of apps by having a Google Account.
