Having Data transfer from Excel intro Word

by Jman787 / July 25, 2013 3:18 AM PDT

I work in a management company and we have about a half a dozen of separate word documents that we have to fill in names,addresses,numbers, etc...

I believe there is a way of automating this but i don't know how or what its called.

I want to be able to type in the information into an excel spreadsheet and have the relevant data transferred to select word documents at certain points in the document. Is this possible?

TIA!

What about Mail Merge in Word?

You can fill the items in a grid like a spreadsheet. Probably can use your excel file for it too. I have Word97 and use it to address Christmas card envelopes but you could use it to fill in any document.

To tie it all together. It's a company so I'm sure they know how to hire the talent when required.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
