Customer Reminders: This is clever. Excel can be programmed to send an Email when a cell gets beyond a certain limit __ so if you're doing oil changes that should be done every few months, just collect the customer's Email address and have Excel use it to send them a helpful Email a few months after they had their oil changed last! The powers that Excel can offer your auto shop stretch so far beyond merely watching the profit margins that if you're not using it for more advanced functions, you're losing out. Stretch it's wings! Set some automatic alarms for your inventory and some automatic Emails for your customers, and see what Excel can do for you!
To create a table in Word, choose Table from the Insert tab. Word will display the Insert Table pop_up. Use your mouse to select the number of columns and rows in your table. As you highlight the row and table combinations, Word will display the corresponding table in the document below the Insert Table pop_up. When you have highlighted the number of rows and columns you need, click the mouse button. Word will insert the corresponding table into the document. You can adjust the column widths and row heights as needed. Additionally, when you insert content into a cell, the cell width and height will adjust accordingly. Word also offers built_in table templates that enable you to insert pre_formatted "Quick Tables" into your documents. To insert a table using one of Word's templates, choose Insert > Table > Quick Tables and choose the template you'd like to use from the gallery. When you click on the template, Word will insert the pre_formatted table of your choice.
