Office 2007 Professional - Upgrade
Write a Review
Strengths: So many more features than previous versions of office. Calaboration is much better as well!
Weaknesses: It takes a little to while to get used to the new interface.
Strengths: Office 2007 is a major re-working of the Office Suite. As a long time Office user it was a major change, but once I spent a little time on the MS website I got up to speed. I actually bought this to get the 2010 upgrade. 2010 has corrected some of my nits about the new UI. VBA is a lot better now, though my old code is still running.
Access has changed the least. It's still a good desktop tool. I use it for ad hoc data assembly and analysis, home applications, and SQL prototyping. With VBA you can use regular expressions as part of queries. Even though this is not a production grade db
Since MS Office 2003 Redmond has put out a solid product. OpenOffice remains a joke and Corel (the old WordPerfect) has gotten progressively worse.
Weaknesses: The new UI can be daunting, but it's worth the effort to learn it. MS2010 has made a few important improvements to the ribbon bar.
"Don't know how I lived without it"
Strengths: It is so easy to use a beginner could sit down and create beautiful presentions, professional business letters, office memos and much more.

Comments: I don't know how I managed without this program for so long, the things I send out now are just awesome.

Layout is an improvement over 2003.

Certain features are located in different menus than 2003.

Strengths: It took me awhile to get used to this product, but after that I found the programs really easy and very powerful. No problems any more...

"Good product, exactly as described"
Strengths: Easy install, all features work as stated

"A good improvement to the Suite"
Strengths: Ribbon layout improves user efficiency
Easier to learn for a new user
Weaknesses: Experienced office users will have to relearn some of the button and command groupings.
Comments: The office 2007 suite with the new ribbon toolbar layout is quite an improvement over their past layout. It does take time to learn, but pulls more commands forward making document editing easier.
Strengths: Easy to navigate
Weaknesses: The mail merge, while very good, no longer allows you to merge with the document without saving all the info into your data base...then you have to go back in and delete the info you don't want to keep, unlike the older versions.
Comments: I don't ever buy anyone else's office software. However, Microsoft should bring this work back to the U.S. as the Indians are not doing as good of a job.
Strengths: every time I've placed an order with Softwaremedia, the products has always show up on time. The website is very easy to navigate and can find what ever you are looking for.
Weaknesses: some time box products comes as OEM items
"Makes great looking presentations!"
Strengths: Tabbed toolbar makes navigation quick and easy.
Weaknesses: There's a bit of a learning curve from the 2003 version but once you get it, you'll love it!
