Choosing the Best Applications for Your Tasks

Software vendors have been promising for some time that the integration of all applications will be made easier so users can focus on the document rather than the program being used to create it. Office 97 brings that promise a lot closer to reality. You can use whatever applications are best for the task at hand, and then integrate all the pieces into PowerPoint, which is the best tool for creating presentations.

Access or FoxPro can be the best tool for warehousing large databases of information, but Excel or Lotus 1-2-3 is often a better tool for analyzing that data. Word can be one of the best tools for writing thoughts about that analysis. However, PowerPoint will be the best tool to integrate all this into a coherent presentation. The following examples of real-world solutions to specific problems show how to integrate the best tool for each part of the task into the final product—that is, a PowerPoint presentation. Each example defines a specific objective, recognizes typical problems, and provides solutions to resolve those problems without compromising the quality of the final product.
