Did you know you can use Excel to let people to sign up for an event? I use it every year for the staff Christmas party.

You can have people submit one or two bits of information... read more

Of course Excel lets you keep track of your members, their information, if their dues are current and how much they owe. But did you know that in tandem with Outlook, you can get Excel to send your members email reminders about how much they owe? Or you can thank them for paying promptly.

Through the years, I have seen numerous reports that provided the reader with no useable information. Why you may ask? Because the report creator didn't understand the difference between data and information. Data is a number; an answer; a disparate answer without focus or label.
