Microsoft Word 2013

The positional arguments in MS Word helps you to refer to the specific cell range according to the position of the current i.e. selected cell. The applied positional argument determines the direction of the cell’s ranging. The entered positional arguments always calculate the range beginning with the cells that are adjacent to the current cell. You can combine two positional arguments to calculate the cells that are in the same row and column with the current cell.

GOOGLE DOCS VS. MICROSOFT WORD

Google Docs

Many years now, that is for almost a decade we have all pretty much used Microsoft Word for our word processing needs, but now that the IT market is so extended and has faced a lot of changes, new options are becoming very popular.

Until recently there was simply no alternative to the Microsoft Office applications. If you wanted a document typed up and edited, there was Microsoft Word and if you wanted to tabulate your accounts, there was Microsoft Excel. To make a presentation to clients, you would have used Microsoft PowerPoint.

But then a new option came to the spotlight: Google Docs promising multi-user collaboration, e-mail integration and cloud access.

Microsoft Office offers a wide range of functions and tasks and perhaps a key advantage of Microsoft Office is that, unlike its competitors, the applications function perfectly without an Internet connection. Data is kept local and centralized, calming many concerns about security and fidelity.
