I've been so much as told to upgrade to Office 2007. We're developing a
program to generate reports from gobs of data and our developer sees
advantages to working with 2007. I'm going to be working with the developer
to design the output so I have to have 2007 on my system. His thought is
that we might as well get things worked out as soon as we can--we'll have to
support 2007 eventually, so let's get going!

So far, other than having to learn the new interface, issues have been
minimal. In some ways, the new interface makes a lot of sense. In a few
cases, I've had some trouble finding the right buttons or commands.

I spent just a short time playing around with paragraph numbering. At first
blush, it seems to be an improvement. At least I had to try to break it.
Yes, you can break it. No, I didn't conduct exhaustive testing--only one
numbering style.

On a positive note, some of the other Office applications are much easier to
use, at least I think so. I'm building a database in Access and it's the
best I've seen out of 95, 97, 2000, 2003 and 2007. And, 2007 gives you the
ability to save your files in older formats for backward compatibility.
Programs warn you if you're going to lose any functionality. Your milage may

I think I read somewhere when it first came out that there are going to be
third-party add-ons to cope with this for people who prefer keyboard
shortcuts. Give it a bit of time. I have no reason to move from Word 2003 at
this point, personally, so I'm not even very interested in Word 2007 unless
it has fixed some of the things that have been problems for years.
