(upbeat music) - [Voiceover] Hi and welcome to Migrating form Microsoft Word 2003 to Word 2007. I'm David Rivers, Microsoft has incorporated some major changes and improvements in Word 2007 so if you're considering migrating from Word 2003 this title will help to make your transition to Word 2007 a smooth one. We'll begin with a tour of the new and improved user interface, namely the ribbon, where you'll find easy and logical access to the various features and functions in Word 2007.
Then we'll investigate the various options for staying compatible with older versions of Microsoft Word, such as the compatibility checker and compatibility mode which will be very helpful if you're working in a mixed environment. The way you perform many of the common commands in Microsoft Word 2003 may be performed differently in Word 2007. We'll investigate the office button for common file related commands and we'll work with the quick access tool bar to help create a more efficient work environment. We'll also work with the mini tool bars for even faster access to related functionality when selecting content in Word 2007.
Lastly, we'll examine ways you can customize the user interface to personalize your work environment, let's get started.
