Chapter 1. An Overview of Office XP > An Overview of Office XP Applications

An Overview of Office XP Applications

The basic lineup of programs in Microsoft Office XP is essentially identical to those that have made up every Office version since Office 97. Overall, the package consists of five core applications—Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Access—as well as a handful of smaller programs. FrontPage is available in high-end editions, and Microsoft tosses a free copy of Publisher into some Office boxes. The sections that follow describe what's new in each of these applications.

Note

This book covers most of the applications found in the Professional Special Edition of Office XP. If you've purchased a different Office edition, the program code for individual applications is the same and our advice applies just as well. In particular, if you use the Standard edition of Office, you'll find everything you need in here. The only commonly found Office component we don't cover is Publisher (included in the Small Business Edition of Office XP, bundled with some new PCs) and the high-end programming tools in the Developers Edition.
