They have Office, but most won't have Access. Plus the users need to be able to call individual reports & sets of reports from both the back-office application (USoft) & the front-office (Java web-based). Doing something in Word is a possible option, but that will have to wait until I find my Office CD to install the extras needed - D'oh!
