Copying Information Between Applications

Word can do many things, but it can’t do everything. You occasionally have to switch to another application for a project. You can have the best of both worlds because you can pull that information into a Word document. You can do a simple copy and paste operation to transfer one item at a time, or you can use the Office Clipboard to copy multiple items and then paste them in as needed.
