Software Upgrade - Not much of an Upgrade

Office 2007??

This piece of software is seriously killing me. Having a work laptop sucks. You don’t have a choice of what to put on the computer or what to NOT put on the computer. Left to me, I would stick with office 2003. Afterall, I have been using it for donkey years and never had an issue with it. But Big Blue had to switch everyone one to office 2007 and since then, my life has not been the same. The simple act of composing in Microsoft word becomes a huge chore when you don’t know where the “insert caption” button is. Everything I need to do, I have to “F1” the information.(deep hiss) I don’t need all this yeye learning curves. All I need is to be able to cook up a document in Word and not rekindle my computer-illiterate years

So how is the switch over going for you guys? I have found out that its preety cool afterall. I think I have Excel and Word locked down. I don’t know about the other ones like ppt and access and I rarely use them . I guess I will find out when the need arises eh?

Tolantino, "Big Blue" would refer to IBM not MS(4give but ITK dey do me) and I think you're right why change when the old MS worked? I used 2007 in same year and it sucked so I reverted to 2003 and still do. I guess I could do so then as I controlled what's installed on the office PCs then -Wale H
