System and method for changing axis of view in a defined spreadsheet

The present invention relates to the field of information processing by digital computers, and more particularly to a system and method aimed to perform a rotation operation into a defined matrix working zone, within a 3D electronic spreadsheet environment thanks to the concept of a Rotation Manager. In view of the foregoing and other problems of the conventional systems and methods, it is an object of the system to provide the way to define of a 3D working zone, which is the range of cells within which the Rotation operation takes place, axis corresponding to the set of cells belonging to the 3D working zone, frozen fields corresponding to the set of cells belonging to the working zone, and which must be kept untouched by the rotation operation, to be copied as this in a defined destination zone, rotation axis, rotation criteria, positive or negative and the way to perform the rotation based on the following method:
