Hi Deborah,

Word 2007 is a completely different beast. Toolbars you create in 2003
appear under the ribbon button "Add-ins", and you cannot edit their buttons
once they've moved there.

2007 added macro functions that you had to work around in 2003.

2007 broke "unsafe" macro functions you used to love in 2003.

Microsoft is still running the ultimate steal deal, where students can buy a
full copy of MS Office 2007 Ultimate for cheap. Buy it for any students in
your home, and ask them to let you test your template on it.

US: http://theultimatesteal.com $59.95USD
CANADA: http://theultimatesteal.ca $64.00CAD

For working with the Ribbon, I downloaded 7-zip http://www.7-zip.org/ ,
which lets me browse Office 2007 documents as a file directory. I read a
number of websites about managing the ribbon, and after installing my first
set of buttons I really like that interface a lot.

-Tony
