Well, that's a bit like my saying, "I'm a driving expert. I can expertly
steer, accelerate, shift gears and parallel park. I'm just c**p at

If he's not an expert in all the Office products, he shouldn't say he's
an expert in the suite. Besides, it carries much more clout with me to
say "I'm an expert in MS Access and Excel and experienced with MS Word"
(or, better yet, "I've created large and complicated databases in MS
Access and am a pivot table guru in MS Excel") than to say "I'm a
Microsoft Office expert". The term "expert" is pretty relative. As the
saying goes, in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is expert. Or
something like that. DB.
