Work More Efficiently with the New Task-Based User Interface
People often do not use software as efficiently as possible, simply because they do not have the time to invest in learning all the tools and shortcuts available. Office Professional 2007 can take the time out of learning new tools and performing routine tasks.
The new task-based user interface available across the Microsoft Office system helps you to work more efficiently by automatically displaying the appropriate tools for your current task. You no longer have to navigate complex menus or open multiple toolbars to make a small format change or change a drawing. Microsoft Office system programs recognize the features you currently use and tailor the interface accordingly.

Reduce Junk E-Mail
If you are in the business of managing customers, making business decisions, or handling day-to-day operations, you cannot afford to waste time sorting through junk mail. An improved junk e-mail filter sorts out undesirable messages based on your preferences. Office Outlook 2007 also helps protect you against e-mail phishing scams by automatically disabling links within any suspicious messages and warning you of potentially threatening or malicious links.
Schedule Tasks on Your Outlook Calendar
Office Outlook 2007 integrates your To-Do Bar task list with your calendar, so you can better schedule your time. When you complete a task on a given day, the task ?sticks? to that day, providing a visual record of the work you performed. Tasks you do not complete roll over to the next day and accumulate until you finish them.

With new and powerful integrated Instant Search, you can quickly find the information you need, whether it is in your e-mail, calendar, contacts, or tasks. Type in a keyword, and Instant Search quickly searches all your Outlook data. Results begin to appear in Instant Search as soon as you start typing your search terms. You also have the flexibility to create queries with different criteria, such as date, color categories, and importance.

Organize E-Mail by Using Color Categories
The new color categories feature in Office Outlook 2007 gives you a quick, visual way to distinguish types of mail items from one another, making it easier to sort and find information. For example, you could assign a color category to all items related to a certain project. Simply right-click each e-mail message, calendar item, or contact related to that project and select a color. Later, when you need to find information related to that project, you can sort by color category to quickly and visually identify what you are looking for.

Create Professional-Quality Business Documents
Office Word 2007 includes many new and improved features to expedite the process of creating and formatting polished business documents. The new task-based menus, for example, automatically display the tools you need for whatever task you might be doing. With Quick Styles and Building Blocks you can spend more time writing and less time formatting documents. And with the new Live Preview feature, you can view your changes easily, so you no longer have to undo or redo them.

Save Time with Building Blocks
Most organizations use some of the same information?company address or profile, people?s bios, and legal disclaimers?in all their business documents. The new Building Blocks feature helps you save time and reduce errors by creating building blocks of frequently used information that everyone in your company can access. Simply select the content you want from the Building Blocks menu and insert it into your document.
Save as PDF or XPS
Sometimes you may need to save your Word document in a fixed file format so that other people who may not have Office Word 2007 can view it. Office Word 2007 now supports saving your document as a Portable Document Format (PDF) or XML Paper Specification (XPS) file.* Now you can post your documents on the Internet, or share them with others, knowing that users can view them regardless of the type of computer or programs they use.
Create Designer-Quality Marketing Materials
Your business collateral and marketing materials can enhance or damage your company?s image. Well-designed brochures, postcards, catalogs, and e-newsletters can help boost your professional image, support your creativity, and deliver your message with clarity. Office Publisher 2007 has the tools you need to project the right image for your business and make an impact with customers in person or online. With Office Publisher 2007 you can easily and confidently design and publish professional sales and marketing materials in-house.

Get Started with Publisher Tasks
To help guide you through the most common procedures, new Publisher Tasks expose you to the features you will most likely need to use during creation, distribution, and follow-up of marketing materials. Publisher Tasks also include tips for personalizing your publication, preparing your mailing lists, preparing your publication for commercial printing, tracking its effectiveness, working with images, and more.
Use Designer-Quality Templates or Create Your Own
To get you started quickly, choose from an extensive library of designer-quality templates that you can customize, or begin with one of the many design templates for newsletters, brochures, flyers, postcards, Web sites, e-mail messages, and other publications. You can also create your own publication templates and categorize, preview, open, and save them within My Templates. You can also preview and open templates from the Microsoft Office Online Template Gallery within Publisher.

Build Effective Presentations
When you give a presentation to your customers, partners, or investors, you want it to have impact. To communicate effectively, your slides need to be crisp, clear, and polished. You can get just the look you want with the new and enhanced features in Office PowerPoint 2007.
Use Slide Layout and Prebuilt Slides
Get started by choosing from the library of professionally designed slide layouts in Office PowerPoint 2007. You can customize slides to get exactly the layout you want, or use new prebuilt slide layouts for the most common topics. You can also create layouts with multiple charts, tables, and text, and then save them as templates.

Graphics, Tables, and Charts
You can now build tables and charts in Office PowerPoint 2007 by using the same easily accessible tools you have come to depend on in Office Word 2007. Improved graphics capabilities help you add, edit, and modify images in your slides. With new AutoShape enhancements and improvements in the selection and manipulation of objects, you no longer have to worry about getting the picture you want on the page.
Task-Based User Interface
With the new user interface of the Microsoft Office system, Office Excel 2007 presents the appropriate tools at the right time so that you can produce your best work more quickly. When you work with a table, for example, and you need help choosing the right format, the intuitive table galleries in Office Excel 2007 help you preview how a table will look before you make your final selection.
Simple, Custom Charting Tools
Nothing communicates business data as clearly as a chart, and now it is easy to create professional charts and graphs in Office Excel 2007. With easy charting tools available from the newly redesigned interface of the Microsoft Office system, you can create more professional-looking charts with just a few clicks of your mouse. In your charts, you can use 3-D, soft shadowing, and antialiasing effects to identify key data trends or focus on future projections.

Simplify Database Creation and Use
Many business professionals are reluctant to adopt a database solution because they do not believe that they have the technical skills and resources to set up and manage a database. With Office Professional 2007, database implementation is easy. Office Access 2007 simplifies the entire database experience, from creating the database to analyzing and reporting the data.
Office Access 2007 eliminates the initial hurdles to database development by providing an intuitive Getting Started experience that includes options for launching a new application, opening an existing application, or choosing a template to build a new application.
Import Your Data
After your database is set up, it is easy to populate it with data. Because Office Access 2007 is tightly integrated with all other Microsoft Office system programs, you have a variety of options for collecting and distributing data. You can import the data from programs such as Office Excel 2007, Office Outlook 2007, and Office Outlook 2007 with Business Contact Manager.
Navigate Your Database
Like other Microsoft Office system programs, Office Access 2007 has a new task-based user interface designed to help you work with maximum efficiency. While nearly 1,000 commands are available in Office Access 2007, the new interface displays only those tools and menus that are relevant to the task you are performing. These commands appear on a toolbar that is completely customizable to meet your needs. And new features such as the Add New Field column and improved selection capabilities make the Office Access 2007 experience similar to that of Office Excel 2007.
Office Access 2007 also provides you with a comprehensive view of tables, forms, queries, and reports with a new Navigation Pane. You can even create custom groups to organize and see all the forms and reports related to a single table.
Quickly Create Tables
With Office Access 2007, it?s easier to work directly within a datasheet to create and customize tables. Simply start entering information into a data cell?just as you do today in Excel. When you enter a new value, Office Access 2007 automatically adds a new field and detects the data type (such as date, number, and text). You can paste Excel tables into a new datasheet, and Office Access 2007 will build all the fields and recognize the data types automatically. You can also use the Field Template pane to insert fields that were predefined for you. You simply drag the fields to the table.
