Using Microsoft Office Binder to Group Documents

One of the great advantages to working in Windows with Office 97 is the ability to create documents that use material from different applications. For example, a proposal to a client may contain material from Word, Excel, and Project. The proposal may begin with a letter of introduction, followed by answers to the bid request, and include documents containing project specifications, worksheets containing budget and resource items, charts showing costs and resource loading, as well as Gantt or Pert charts showing project management.

In the past, most people worked with each of these documents separately—storing, printing, and collating them as individual files. A few people tried linking or embedding everything into a Word document. The Binder enables you to work with the files involved in a project as though they are a single bound document. Within one window you can work with documents from many different Office 95 applications. As you switch between documents, the menus and toolbars change to reflect the application that created the document. You can easily switch between documents, insert new documents, print the entire project with contiguous page numbers, and store or e-mail the binder as a single file.
