All-in-all it was a frustrating and time consuming experience.
Transitioning from Office 2003 (or an earlier version of Office) to Office 2007 (or a later version of Office) can be very frustrating. Even after five months or using Office 2007, I still spend way too much time hunting for the correct menu option to perform even simple tasks. Along the way, I’ve learned a few things and found some useful tools.
