What Can You Do with Microsoft Word?

Perhaps an easier question to answer would be, “What can’t you do with Microsoft Word?” If your project has anything to do with words—typing them, arranging them, enhancing them, or checking them—Word can take care of it. Here are just a few of the tasks you can accomplish with Word:

  • Compose the monthly sales letter to your field reps.

  • Pull together a team to collaboratively produce your company’s annual report.

  • Create the weekly lesson plan for your classroom.

  • Write, edit, and publish an entire book.

  • Create a grocery list (no kidding).

  • Compile your research on the behavior of army ants.

  • Design Web pages and post them on the Internet.

  • Publish a multicolumn newsletter.

  • Create, print, and send a mass e-mail campaign.

Individuals use Word for projects at work, school, and home. Companies use Word as their word processor of choice. Word is used on stand-alone and networked systems alike; it’s a standard format for files sent hither and yon all over the Internet, worldwide. If you want to use a simple-but-powerful word-processing program that is compatible with the majority of programs on the globe, you’re in the right place.
