One example:

"Calculate in Word" by Susan Daffron

"It's well documented that I'm not a huge fan of spreadsheets. If I can use Word instead of Excel, I usually do. Of course, I've met people who have the opposite opinion and create vast lists of text in Excel that I would never, ever create. I just think it's a whole lot easier to deal with Word tables than a whole huge spreadsheet.

The good news for people like me is that even though Word doesn't have the calculating power of Excel, you can use it for basic math functions. Since basic math is just about all this human is capable of, I often find Word's calculating feature is all I need to include simple numeric data in my documents. For example, in one of the business plans I wrote, I was able to use Word tables and calculate a simple balance sheet and sales forecast."
