Learn more than just how to use a Microsoft Office Application...

...learn what Microsoft Office Suite application(s) you will need to complete a task or project.
For instance, have you ever been faced with the task of sending one letter, which will need to be customized), to multiple recipients. I am sure you have; and if you haven't, then you will almost certainly be faced with this dilemma in the future. So what do you do?
This is a Mass-Mailing...
There are a couple of questions that need to be answered before we explore which application (or applications) should be used to accomplish this task.

These questions are as follows:
(a) Where is the letter (located) that I need to customize for each mailing recipient? Do I have to create a new letter? What is the information that needs to be customized for each recipient?
(b) Where is the listing of recipients (located) that will be used for this particular project? If there is no list, what are my options - does that mean I have to create the recipient list?
(c) Will I have to filter the list of recipients based on some type of criteria to match only those recipients located in Florida? If so, how will I filter out only what I need?
Once you have the answers to the questions listed above (as there may be more that will need to be considered in order to complete this task) you will be able to decide on what applications to use. One of the applications to consider is Microsoft Word which has a feature called Mail-Merge. Can you guess what the other application(s) is that may be used to complete this task?
To learn how such a task can be completed, check out our July "Webinar Wednesday" session scheduled for July 25, 2012. Sign up for the event by visiting our website ( starting July 1st.

Professor TAB - Returns on Sunday, February 19th!!!

It has been a long time since I last posted a Professor TAB episode, but I am happy to say that he has returned!!!  

We left off discussing how he completed the entrepreneurship class that set him on the path that he still follows to this day.  He goal is to one day build something that he can pass on to his daughter when she is ready to take over the business.  Graduation from this class provided him with the first "non-labor" intensive job in his short working career; as he realized he could use his brain instead of his brawn.  Professor TAB would later be called to present at a youth conference and it was then that he knew he had found his calling - combining computers (& technology) with teaching (& presenting).

Stay tuned for the return of Professor TAB, on Sunday - February 19th,  as he shares more about his trials and tribulations toward achieving his dream of owning the leading technology training and consulting grassroots business whose mission is to "bridge the technology literacy gap."

TAB Training & Consulting, LLC - Celebrates Black History Month

TABTC, LLC celebrates Black History Month by acknowledging African American Women that ave used technology as a tool for building and developing their human capital toward reaching the very positions they currently hold and to achieve future professional goals.

“The Origin”

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history. 

 “The Theme”

Every year there is a theme identified with Black History Month and this year’s theme is “Black Women in American Culture and History.”   We are going to feature Black Women that have used technology (science, math and engineering) as a means for developing and building their human capital toward acquiring the prestigious positions that they currently hold.

“We acknowledge – Ursula Burns”

Ursula Burns, now Chairman & CEO of Xerox, holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Polytechnic Institute of New York and a Master's in Engineering from Columbia University.  She is the first African-American woman CEO to head a Fortune 500 company.  Mrs. Burns got her start at Xerox as a summer Intern.
