Short Description:

In this course, you'll learn how to use the new features of Microsoft Office 2007. You'll get comfortable creating Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, and an Access database.

Before you know it, you'll be using each program with ease, accomplishing your work faster, and creating documents that look better than ever!



Long Description:

In this course, you'll learn how to use the new features of Microsoft Office 2007. Through easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions, you'll get comfortable creating Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, and an Access database. On the surface, MS Office 2007 looks a lot different than previous versions (no more menus or toolbars!), but by learning to understand the dramatically changed, Ribbon-based interface, you'll quickly get back on the road to productivity.

In each program, we'll take a quick tour that shows you how to perform the most common everyday tasks. You'll work with a flier, a budget, a funding presentation, and an inventory database--all things you might need to produce in real life. And as you start to feel at home with the Ribbon and tabs, you'll find that underneath that shiny new dashboard, many "nuts and bolts" of the programs aren't really all that different than before!

In Word, you'll learn about QuickStyles and other ways to apply automatic formatting to your documents. You'll insert professional-looking graphics like text boxes and SmartArt. You'll use the new document themes--sets of delicious colors and matching fonts that will make you feel like a graphic designer!

In Excel, you'll use handy cell styles to quickly format your worksheets. You'll see how the new Page Layout view lets you work with your spreadsheets more easily. You'll customize great-looking Excel chart designs to make them totally your own with special effects like reflections, shadows, and WordArt. And you'll see how the Excel list feature lets you handle columnar data like name and address lists.

In PowerPoint, we'll explore new text and graphics features that will take your presentations to a new level. You'll use charts and diagrams to make your important points. And you'll really enjoy special formatting features that can make your presentations shine. Custom backgrounds plus slide show animations and transitions will get your audience's attention and keep it!

In Access, you'll find out how simple it is to create databases by using field templates and some new field types. You'll also learn to use classy new formats for forms and reports. And you'll see how database templates can help you get up and running sooner.

Before you know it, you'll be using each MS Office 2007 program with ease, accomplishing your work faster, and creating documents that look better than ever!
