Word training Leicestershire – do you know the difference between what package to use for what?
For years Word was the number one software package that everybody used, a standard for anyone in business to compose a letter, fax or documented procedure. It was used as the template for invoices, despatch notes and quotations. With the growing interest in Outlook for emailing and Excel not just for calculations but for forms also, Word has lost some of its importance in the business marketplace.
Some where does Word still fit in inside the working environment and where can Outlook take precedence? Here is a simple table showing where perhaps each is best suited, along with techniques in each.
|Microsoft Word||Microsoft Excel||Microsoft Outlook|
|Employee handbook – TOC, sections, Navigation||Invoices, Quote Forms, Despatch notes with formulas embedded||Short communications|
|Documents with Headers and footers, page numbering||Lists of contacts for mail merge in Word||Attachments e.g. files for pictures, Excel spreadsheets, Word documents|
|Inserting graphics e.g. Tables, charts, Smart Art||Sophisticated charts||Asking a number of people a question – receiving replies., arranging corporate meetings|
|Tables with hyperlinks||Lists – sorting and filtering||Distribution of surveys|
|Citations, References, Bibliographies in dissertations||Email mail merge marketing|
