Microsoft Office Application That Useful to Help Your Work

Adding text in an Office application is easy; just start typing. If the default text formatting doesn’t suit your needs, however, Office also offers numerous text formatting and customization options.

The Home tab in Word, PowerPoint, Publisher, and Excel is home to a solid collection of text-formatting tools, giving you the option to select a font style and size; change text color; or apply bold, italic, and underlining to your text. You can also align text, use WordArt to create sophisticated text objects, search for and replace text, and use the Font dialog box for more advanced formatting.

Finally, you can fix any spelling errors by performing a spell check—something you need to do on every Office document.


Formatting Text on the Home Tab (Word)

You’ll often need to sort your data, whether it be numerically, alphabetically, by color, or by icon. You aren’t limited to sorting the rows—columns can also be sorted.

Sorting data allows you to change how you view it. For example, if your dataset has a date column, you can view the oldest data at the top, or you can view the newest data at the top. You can also sort the data so like values, such as product names, are grouped together. You can even combine sorts so that you not only view the products grouped together, but in date order from oldest to newest.
