You can use Excel to make a Graph representation of your data located in some related cells

What kind of data would i been entering for office jobs?

What kind of data do u guys enter in excel and access?

1.) parts
2.) supplies
3.) billing
4.) income
5.) peoples names and information
6.) What else ?

what else can these programs be used for?/

Excel has built-in functions to calculate most of the parameters that are used in engineering:
. Trig
. Exponential
. Imaginary/Complex numbers
. Statistics
. Searching and sorting
In addition it has built-in graphing capability
As a result, Excel can be used to perform many common engineering calculation tasks.
Excel has a built-in programming language called VBA (Visual Basic for Applications). VBA is a very powerful language that can be used to write programs that that would otherwise require a general purpose programming language, such as C or C++. The nice thing about VBA for Excel is that it can take advantage of Excel's built-in user interface, printing, graphing capabilities. Give VBA a try, even if you have no immediate use for it. You may even get hooked:D
Access is a database manager. It is used for managing, manipulating, searching, sorting data. As an example, suppose you have a database of electronic components in your inventory. The daatabase has electrical parameters in fields for each part number. Access could be used, for example to find all capacitors with a capacitance between 0.1 and 0.47 uF, with a voltage rating grater than or eaual to 50V, and a metallized polycarbonate dielectric.
Outlook is useful for e-mail tasks, and managing appointments, meetings, contacts.

Thanks for the help
