Microsoft Office 2007: Making the Switch from Office 2003

If you're making the switch from Microsoft Office 2003 to 2007 or considering doing so, check out these interactive tutorials from Microsoft Office Online. The tutorials allow you to click on a command button in the 2003 program of your choice and it then shows you where that command button is now located in the new 2007 Office ribbon. The tutorials can also be downloaded to your computer for later use when you're not connected to the internet. Tutorials are available for Word 2007, PowerPoint 2007, Excel 2007, Access 2007, and Outlook 2007.
