Microsoft offers a range of productivity tools that seamlessly integrate across applications allowing you to process content in one app and continue to develop in another. This means you can take advantage of data storage and processing related features in Access or Excel and then create a report using your findings in Word, prepare a presentation in PowerPoint, add annotations in OneNote. You can also take data from Access or Excel and create mailing lists, labels, or personalized promotional materials for printing using Word or for e-mail in Outlook. You can find a full list of the Office Apps with great detailed documentation and tutorials on the support.office.com website.
In this chapter, we look at some of the opportunities for integrating Office Suite applications, including the use of mail merge, embedding, and linking content.
