Hi,
I have 3 excel files in a SharePoint document library, users will keep adding records to these excel files. I would like to have some kind of report or similar thing to show me how many records/rows in each of these excel files currently. If you have some idea, please be as detail as possible since I am new to SharePoint.
Thanks!

which version and edition of sharepoint are you using?
Edition include:
Foundation   = free with Windows Server Ca
Standard - licensed less features
Enterprise - licensed more features

If you have Enterprise edition your options are different than if you have one of the others

with Enterprise Edition you get Excel services - which allows you to view your spreadsheet in your browser and all the formulas and the like are run on the server before the data is displayed in the browser - if this is what you have then you just need to add  a formula to report the number of rows and display it at the top of the sheet - there is a webpart for displaying information from the spreadsheet.  If you don't have Enterprise edition then you will need custom code - or you could add a field to the document library where spreadsheet is stored and have people update how many rows they added to the sheet manually when the check it in

The web part is called Excel Web Access - Here's a link to an MSDN article about Excel services in Sharepoint
