Overview

To the surprise of most Mac fans, the number one bestselling Macintosh software is Microsoft Office for the Macintosh. It's by far the most popular Macintosh software, and the first software purchase a new Mac user is likely to make. And for the first time, Office 2001 comes without a single page of printed instructions. The packaging is a five- inch-square clear plastic case housing the CD-ROM and little else. Fortunately, Pogue Press/O'Reilly is once again ready to embrace the befuddled and overwhelmed—with Office 2001 for Macintosh: The Missing Manual. It tackles each of the primary Office applications with depth, humor, and clarity, and provides relief for the hapless Mac user who'd rather read professionally written printed instructions than hunt through a maze of personality-free help screens.The book is structured to help the beginner as well as the seasoned user. Part One provides an overview of Word. From "What's New," to "Basic Word Processing," to "Document Design," to "Advanced Word Processing"—with in-depth details on creating Web pages and performing mail merges using Word. Part Two covers the new Palm-syncable calendar in Entourage, including all aspects of email, how to best use the calendar and address book, and crucial information on the Palm Hotsync. Part three explains all the finer points of Excel, including Microsoft's exciting new "List Manager," specifically designed for creating and manipulating lists without the prerequisite of learning spreadsheet tools.Office 2001 for Macintosh: The Missing Manual is coauthored by a dream team of Missing Manual alumni: David Reynolds, executive editor of MacAddict magazine and coauthor ofAppleWorks 6: The Missing Manual, and Nan Barber, whose efforts as the copy editor of the first four Missing Manual titles gave her an intuitive feeling for the friendly, funny, authoritative voice of the series. Once again, the authors are joined by series founder David Pogue, who has closely edited the book to ensure excellence of depth, accuracy, and prose.
