Integrated Report Writing in Office

by rrp / December 13, 2004 11:53 PM PST

I am trying to create a fairly complex report using Word as my report base and integrating numerous Powerpoint and Excel files into the document. Is there a mechanism that makes this process manageable? Thanks.

I'll answer no.

To manage "reports" many will turn to report tools like Crystal Reports and other such things.

The method you note is fine for one-off creations, but I've run into people that do nothing but duke it out daily with just Office.

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?
