Tedds and Tedds for Word – what’s the difference?

When you launch Tedds, the Tedds Start wizard typically displays two editions:

  1. Tedds

  2. Tedds for Word


Tedds is very simple and powerful and completely self-contained. In addition, Tedds requires no knowledge of any other package. This edition gives you access to all the major Tedds calculations and to most of the utilities. If you are new to Tedds and have access to both editions, we recommend that you start by using the Tedds edition.

Note: For clarity, the Tedds edition is referred to from this point on as the Tedds Application.

Tedds for Word

Tedds for Word gives you access to all Tedds calculations (including component calculations) and all the utilities. However, Tedds for Word is even more powerful: you can include multiple Tedds calculations in the same document along with text, pictures, and output from other applications.

Tedds for Word is entirely integrated with and operates within Microsoft Word. That is why you need to have access to and some knowledge of Microsoft Word to use Tedds for Word.

In Tedds for Word, you can write and format documents according to your needs. You also have all the editing features of Microsoft Word at your disposal to create professional-looking reports.

In addition, Tedds for Word allows you to write your own calculations. You can simply type the variables and formulae within a Word document, and then use Tedds for Word commands to automatically resolve the calculations. When the inevitable design changes occur, modify your calculations and re-calculate the document, and Tedds for Word calculates the new results for you.
