Microsoft Office XP is huge, but most people will never touch most of its capabilities. So they’d welcome a quick, easy, practical guide to the parts of Office XP they’ll really use. Even better if it called their attention to some of the really nifty shortcuts Microsoft has buried in there.
Not arcane stuff. Stuff you’d use if you knew about it.
Like a clipboard that’s smart enough to hold more than one item. Or Format Painter, for copying formats with a single click. Or Excel’s Watch window, which lets you keep track of what’s going in a cell on another worksheet, without constantly having to switch among sheets. Or Office’s new automatic diagram builder for pyramids, Venn diagrams, org charts, and the like. Or stuff that’s easier than it once was but is still no piece of cake -- like mail merge.
These are the kinds of goodies you’ll find in Office XP Professional In Easy Steps. And you’ll only pay $9.95 for it. (Which, given the price of Microsoft Office, is quite a relief.)
Stephen Copestake covers all five core Office Professional applications: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Access. There’s also substantial coverage of shared features, such as the Office Shortcut Bar.
All in all, you’ll find 175 step-by-step procedures here: everything from bordering pictures in Word to auditing Excel spreadsheets, creating PowerPoint slide masters to publishing Access databases on the Web. Everything’s in full color, including hundreds of screen captures. Bill Camarda
