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? How can you get information from one program into another? Which
programs do you really need, and which ones can you safely ignore? Your
questions will abound and confound!
