Microsoft Office has a lot of great features that we do not cover extensively in our Knowledge Base, because the information is easily available online. If you need assistance with a Microsoft Office application that is unrelated to access or WVU policies, we suggest browsing the Outlook Support website ( ) or searching online.

When searching, be specific. For example, if you are trying to use a formula in Excel 2013, search for "Excel 2013" plus the specific formula. If you cannot find the information you need, try adjusting the keywords you are using in your search.
