    A workbook is just that, a worksheet is whats in the workbook, kinda like an actual book or a file cabinet. It is a collection of worksheets. Workbook is the file in which you work and store your data. Because each workbook can contain many sheets, you can organize various kinds of related information in a single file.If you had one sheet that was a table with information, and another sheet with a pie chart, you would have a workbook.

    Worksheet is a sheet on which you are working in Excel workbook. It is used to list and analyze data.Creating formulas for Excel entering formulas into a spreadsheet we want to make as many references as possible to existing data.You can enter and edit data on several worksheets simultaneously and perform calculations based on data from multiple worksheets. Some kinds of worksheets are chart, Excel4 macro,Excel5 dialog, etc..
