Salir or ir

Can someone please tell me the difference between salió and fue when saying something like "it went well".

When putting this in Spanish dict it gives numerous examples but no indication as to which to use when and why. ? 

Thank you

Hola Wendy, 

Salir bien” has a sense of something turning out well, emphasising the outcome or result of a situation or event e.g. Things looked bad but they “turned out” well “las cosas parecían mal, pero salieron bien.”

On the other hand to make a general statement about how things are going e.g. at work “That meeting went well this morning” would be ir bien; “Esa reunión esta mañana ha ido bien.”

I hope this helps. John
