Description of the Book
Microsoft Office is the next most-used Microsoft product after Windows, Internet Explorer and Outlook Express. Yet most of those who use the suite use only a small fraction of the tools available. This book shows purchasers how to make the most of the programs that come as part of the package - Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint. From basic tasks such as setting up budgeting spreadsheets in Excel and sending emails in Outlook, to more complex projects such as using animations in PowerPoint and mail merging letters in Word, this book will help readers to utilise the full range of functions available with this suite of programs. The book is divided into sections, each section taking the reader through aspects of Word, Excel and PowerPoint at different levels - the first section is for beginners; the next is for those whose skills are developing; then comes a section for those ready for more advanced skills. The final section of the book deals with Outlook. Readers will also see how the programs link together to create an easy work-flow. For example, it shows how to use a basic Excel worksheet within PowerPoint, and how to insert Word or other files into the Notes field when setting up an appointment in Outlook. There are screen shots throughout to help the reader, and the text is simple and easy to follow.
