Difference Between Row and Column

Row

A row is the horizontal arrangement of the objects, words, numbers, and data, or anything. In this type of arrangement, objects are arranged on a horizontal line. Even if the data, or line runs from right to left, or from left to right, this type of arrangement is known as the rows. The term row is widely used in different fields; nowadays it has the most prominent usage on the spreadsheets like Microsoft Excel.

Column

The column is the vertical arrangement of the objects, words, numbers, and data, or anything. In this type of arrangement, objects are arranged one after the other in the sequence. In other words, we can say that in this arrangement the data is organized in such a form that each of the words, figure, or number falls to the other in the sequence.
