    I'm just trying to get an idea on which of the following programs people are using and what are some of the tasks or uses involved.  Not looking for anything specific...just some general feedback:
    1. Word
    2. PowerPoint
    3. Excel
    4. Access

    Hi Frank,

     

    We use A, B, and C. All used for business letters, training, and auditing and reporting.

     

    Thanks,

    Karla

    We use them all, though Access a bit less than the others.

    Thanks Seth.

    One way I started using Access, and it helped build my confidence as well, was by linking Excel spreadsheet to the Access database.  Then over time I began building table, etc.

    What's nice is that by linking Excel files in Access...the Excel files are not affected and one can use the very power functions within Access.

    Thanks Lance.  I sometimes wonder because Access is such a powerful program and does require more than just a novice level of familiarity with some aspects of data analysis and data management if that's why it is not used as often.

    I appreciate your sharing on this thread!

    I use A, B, and C daily. I haven't used Access here but I have thought about setting it up recently to resolve a data ability issue.
