April 9, 2004 R81-534 Enhancements

Many of our Quantrac clients have expressed interest in increased connectivity to other Microsoft Office programs. We have discovered a feature that was inherent in our program that gives this desired connectivity. All users of Quantrac 2004, Release 8 can have this new feature at no additional cost. The new "Office Links" feature in our latest revision of Quantrac 2004, build number 534.

With this new feature, users will be able to export any Quantrac report to Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel (providing, of course, that you have these Microsoft programs). For instance, you may wish to prepare a special Customer list for outsourcing special direct mail correspondence to selected customers. To do this, first generate and preview the report within Quantrac. Then, click the File|Office Links|Analyze It With MS Excel option from the upper Menu Bar. This will launch Microsoft Excel and fills the data cells in a new Excel file. You can then manipulate the data in Excel for any purpose. Additionally, by clicking on the File|Office Links|Publish It with MS Word user's can now customize the previewed report(s) in Microsoft Word.
