As a spreadsheet entry worker, you must have good computer skills, especially with using spreadsheets. It is also important that you have a good typing speed, including attention to detail. You can begin this work as a high school graduate; however, to advance and apply for higher salaried jobs, you need to train yourself in other skills like transcription, writing, and translation.
A spreadsheet entry job requires the worker to enter data into a spreadsheet, which is easier than using database software. Often times, the employer requires you to research information, or type data from other documents and input the data into a spreadsheet as specified by the employer.
