The Programs in the Microsoft Office 2007 Suite
Word 2007 in the newest version in the Word series of word processors offering everything you need to write letters, create letterheads, share content, and just about anything else to do with writing. Excel 2007 is Microsoft’s spreadsheet application that allows convenient data organization, calculation, and analysis.
You can use PowerPoint 2007 to create electronic slides for presentations for both face-to-face meetings and for the web. OneNote 2007 is a relatively recent addition to Microsoft’s Office lineup. OneNote is digital note-taking software allowing you to gather unstructured information (such as when taking notes, brainstorming ideas, etc.) into one place for storage, retrieval, collation, and sharing. Outlook 2007 is an electronic organizer that allows you to collect e-mails, schedule meetings, and store business and personal contacts in one program. In comparison, Outlook’s younger brother Outlook Express is only capable of e-mail and a few other functions such as newsgroup and RSS organization.
Publisher 2007 is a program that never became a major contender in the desktop publishing market. As a desktop publisher, it is aimed more for home rather than office user. Its main competitors are such giants as Adobe PageMaker and Corel Draw. Access 2007 is Microsoft’s main desktop database program allowing you to create and query simple or complex database relationships. Often, small websites use a version of Access to serve dynamic content to visitors to its page content.
