3 3 Collect text from Office documents on the Clipboard Task Pane The Clipboard Task Pane (also called the Clipboard) is a feature that is common to all of the Office applications. It is a simple way to cut/copy and paste information from one application into another. The items you cut or copy stay on the Clipboard until you exit Office.

4 4 Use the clipboard To use the Clipboard, open the application you want to use, click Edit on the menu bar and then click Office Clipboard. The Clipboard Task Pane opens. As you work in your document, anything you copy or cut will appear in the Clipboard. When you want to paste that item somewhere else (either in the same document or a different one), place your cursor in the appropriate spot in your document and then click the item on the Clipboard to be inserted.

You can also use the Search Task Pane to search for a file based on it's properties. To conduct a search, you enter your search criteria and then click the Search button.

13 13 Learn about importing and exporting data Importing data from one Office application to another converts the data from its original source program format to a format that is supported by the destination program. When you import, you start in the destination program and import from the source program Exporting is like importing in that it converts data from one program format to another. When you export, you start in the source program and export to the destination program The advantage of importing and exporting is that you can use the destination program's tools and features to view and manipulate the data.

14 14 Use the Import Spreadsheet Wizard Depending upon which applications you are trying to import or export to or from, you will see different dialog boxes. When you import Excel data into Access, the Import Spreadsheet Wizard will appear. The Import Spreadsheet Wizard will step you through the process and allow you to determine exactly how the data will be imported.
