In MS Office 2003, it worked like this ...

If you are moving from older versions of MS Office into their latest, MS Office 2007 (PC), and are wondering where everything went, don't worry. It's all still there.

Click here to download Microsoft's guides to the 2007 Office system.

The toolbar is not the toolbar anymore. It's now called the Ribbon. Microsoft has several Ribbon Mapping workbooks available to help you transition to the new (ish) software.

Before you say it, yes I know ... it's 2009. However, many government agencies are still on Office 2003 and are just now moving to 2007 (or plan to do so in the next fiscal year). Moving an entire agency to a new version of software is a lot more complicated than you might think, both technologically and politically.
