    I get similar nonsense at work. I email a cow-orker asking how much we paid for X, he sends me a reply that says "The attached spreadsheet contains the information that you requested" - so I wait while Excel fires up, scroll through the spreadsheet to find the answer, close down Excel.
    I wanted his reply to be "£23,000"

    Of course as long as the software has "send to" in the menu - people are going to use it. Your accountants might not be too IT savvy and so don't realise that it is inefficient, clumsy, and not everybody uses Microsoft products. Perhaps you could sell them some IT training!
