I used Microsoft Office 2007 on my office computer while working in graduate school. I did a lot of work in Word and Excel, and some occasional work in PowerPoint (preparing sideshows for a teacher for his classes) and Access (for the student database). I had previously used Office 2003 through college, and I was very used to the way that the 2003 version operated. The transition to 2007 was not a completely smooth one. I had the most problems with the new version of Word. They seemed to be trying to streamline the toolbars and make the top of the page look a lot cleaner, but in doing so, they took some of the most used icons and put them under drop down menus and other places, making them very difficult to find. I wasted a lot of time simply trying to find where things were that used to be obvious and easily accessible. But once I found the new places where things were hidden, the program does work well. It's a quality program that I enjoyed using once I learned it.
