From what I have gathered, the AquaTeale Supermarket has 15 types of output. All these different, and important kinds of output can be generated on the word processing package, Microsoft Word. They are: 1. Letters to Clients: these are letters to the clients of the company stating different sorts of things, like the number of items going to be delivered, etc. These are very important documents both for the company and their clients, and they have to be sent on time and should look very business - like so as to convince the client that the AquaTeale Supermarket is the right company to choose for their requirements. 2. Letters to Suppliers: These are the letters to the manufacturers and suppliers, and are also important to both the company as well as the supplier. 3. Invoices: A document that is used for invoicing/ recording sales of items, stating the date, number of items sold, rate at which the item/s is/ are sold, and the person/ company to whom it was sold. These are essential to keep stock of items sold, and also, to enable easy audit of accounts. 4. Brochures: These are important forms of output used for advertising so as to show the different companies around that there is such a trading company in the state, and also to persuade more companies, especially supermarkets and retail outlets to purchase items from the AquaTeale Supermarket. 5. Letterheads: These are included in the letters that the company types out to identify the company, and to make the letter more business - like. These usually contain the company's name on the top with a logo, and the company's address at the bottom. 6. Receipt Vouchers: These are documents (voucher) acknowledging receipt of goods, and are important for the company's clients to keep a record of the goods they have received. 7. Goods Issue Vouchers: A document (voucher) ...read more.


As for the colourful writing and designs needed, this can be chosen from MS Word's WordArt and ClipArt options. To access, these 2 options, first I have to go to the 'Toolbars' option in the 'View' menu, and select the Drawing option. A set of icons will appear below the screen, from where I will choose the WordArt option first, where I will be shown many different kinds of WordArt styles, wherein I will have to choose one style, and then type the text I want to appear in that style. I can toggle the font size and the 'Bold' and 'Italic' options to suit my purpose. After this, the WordArt style will appear on screen, with the text I have written in. I can move it around to anywhere I want to put it. To activate the ClipArt option, I will go to the 'Toolbars' option in the 'View' menu, and choose the sub - option 'ClipArt', wherein I will be given different categories, ranging from business to medicine, and if I feel one clip is good enough, I will insert it into the document, which in this case, is a brochure. If I want to make the brochure more like a leaflet, I will have to select the 'Columns' icon, and I can split that one page into 2 or more columns. A layout of the brochure can be seen on the next page. Text (2) will come here. Letterheads: These are mainly used by the company to make all their letters look very official and business - like. I will be doing a letterhead on MS Word using the Header and Footer option, which I had explained earlier on, ClipArt, and a bit of one of the drawing tools. In a letterhead, the following are important: * The company name * The company logo * The company address, and branches, if any. ...read more.


Fig 2.0 This is the layout for the monthly sales report document. Maps: Maps are usually designed either when the company is shifting one of it's offices or stores to a different location, or when they are opening up a new office or supermarket branch altogether. Maps are drawn using the drawing tools, which can be accessed by just looking up the 'View' menu. There, an option called 'Toolbars' should appear. If you check the sub options within toolbars, you will come to a facility called 'Drawing'. By just clicking on that facility, the drawing tools are activated, and the drawing tools are found below. There are many drawing facilities, like line drawing, WordArt, ClipArt, circle drawing, arrow marking, text boxes, if needed, 3D effects, Autoshapes, line colour, text colour, background colour, line styles, arrow styles, and a whole host of other facilities. Using the drawing tools, particularly boxes, text boxes, circles, arrows and lines, maps can be designed. All that needs to be done to insert one is to just choose the facility, and drag to suit the size and the need of the user. About text boxes, one has to just choose it, and then drag it to suit size and need, and if one does not want the outline of the text box to be seen, one just has to right - click the mouse, and options will appear, which include the 'Format Text box' option. By choosing that option, many other sub - options will appear, like 'Fill', 'Line' and 'Arrow'. Under the 'Line' sub option, there are 2 categories - 'Colour' and 'Dashed'. By choosing the 'Colour' facility, and clicking on the option, 'No Line', the text box will be now, without it's borderlines. However, the text typed in will still be there. For example, the size can vary by just pulling and dragging the options, as shown below. There are also boxes with 3D settings and different line styles shown below. For Textboxes, an example of a text box with and without it's borderline is shown. ...read more.
