Microsoft Office XP consists of several programs: a word processor (Word 2002), a spreadsheet program (Excel 2002), a presentation graphics program (PowerPoint 2002), a personal information organizer and e-mail client (Outlook 2002), and a database program (Access 2002). And depending on the version of Office XP that you get, you may have bonus programs that include a Web-page design and management application (FrontPage 2002). Having so many programs at your disposal can be very intimidating, especially for the beginning user. Which program do you use for which task?
