  1. nothing goods, i still like to use ms office 2003, less features but good!
    so if u want more features go for it (ms office 2010) but it is much easier to use ms office 2003,,, thanks,,

  2. can anybody tell me what is the diffrence of ms office 2003 and 2007 version

  3. Hi,

    Can anyone tell me if I can 2010 along with the existing 2007 on my stand alone computer? If so, when I install 2010, will it import everything from my existing Outlook 2007 w/o my having to set up all mail boxes etc? If I can. how?

    Many thanks!

  4. Nothing beneficial for most businesses – no reason to upgrade/purchase –

    Like Vista – all bling – no function.

    If they wanted to improve Office they SHOULD have –
    1. Made outlook open multiple e-mail accounts as full exchange -not an additional mailbox with some functionality or pop/imap with very limited functionality but two seperate exchange profiles simultaneously from multiple exchange servers.

    2. Full OLE support for pictures in access – umm wasn’t that functional with Office XP – why take that out? Why should someone have to code to add pictures to a personal database? Might was well use oracle or a real database if you are going to have to use code. Adding Office XP photo editor is the work around but why not just add photo editor back into office if that is the solution?

    3. Offer the old menu bar for people (most of my clients) who don’t want to learn the new menu bar. You can finally modify the ribbon to some extent in 2010 however my clients just want their old ribbon bar. Frankly I have no issue with the new menu bar but I’m one person and most of my clients don’t like it so prefer to stick with office 2003. MS could make money selling the new version if they just offered the old menu as a choice with the new ribbon.

  5. As someone who blogs about OneNote from time-to-time, you may be interested to know the we have created the ultimate online destination for OneNote fans called iheartonenote.com. We have over 8,000 registered users who share tips and tricks, upload videos and notebooks and generally share their love for OneNote.

    I would love to find ways to cross promote with you – whether we exchange links or you do a guest blog on the site or whatever! Please contact me at info@iheartonenote.com to discuss.
