Book Description

Oct. 3 2003 For Dummies
If you have Microsoft Office 2003 For Dummies and just use it to create documents and for e-mail, that’s like having the ultimate gourmet kitchen and only cooking frozen dinners or having a 42” plasma high-definition, sound surround TV and only watching old reruns. This book will help you take control of Office 2003 and use it to take control of your life—at work or at home. It covers Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Access. (Note that not all versions of Office 2003 have Access.) You’ll learn how to create all kinds of documents, set up and use databases, create spreadsheets and do all kinds of numerical calculations and computations, and present your creations in style. With detailed explanations and screen shots, this guide covers:
  • Creating, saving, opening, and printing any Office 2003 file
  • Getting comfortable with common Office 2003 commands, including using the menus and toolbars, working with the task pane, using multiple windows, and copying and pasting with Office Clipboard
  • The basics for working in Word, plus info on formatting your text or document, aligning text, adding headers, footers, or page numbers, adding and editing pictures, and more
  • Playing the numbers with Excel, with info on the basics of spreadsheets (numbers, labels, and formatting) and creating and editing formulas
  • Creating and manipulating charts—line, area, column, bar, and pie varieties
  • Creating PowerPoint presentations using AutoContent Wizard, a template, or from an existing presentation
  • Adding color, pictures, and transitions to jazz up your PowerPoint presentation
  • Getting organized with Outlook, including handling e-mail, organizing contact information, managing tasks with a to-do list, and scheduling appointments
  • Storing stuff in Access, with the basics on using a database, searching, sorting, and making queries, and creating reports

Microsoft Office 2003 For Dummies was written by Wallace Wang, the popular, bestselling author of more than 20 For Dummies computer books. It gives you a great overview and step-by-step how-to for the most common and most helpful functions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Access. It’s a great guide to exploring the incredible powers at your fingertips with Microsoft Office 2003 and enhancing your productivity.  It’s also a great reference to keep handy so you can get a quick review of tasks you don’t often do or figure out more ways to use Office 2003 to make quick work of your work.

2.0 out of 5 stars VERY Basic at Best Jan. 23 2009
By David Stefano - Published on Amazon.com
If you have used any MS Office product and are remotely familiar with topics such as Cut and Paste, Save as..., basic formatting, or anything similar, save your time, your money and your sanity by steering clear of this book. 99% of the information is available under the Help menu.

This book is only good for those just entering the computer world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dummy No More Aug. 13 2006
By Alanda Whelan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book for both beginners and those more knowledgeable about the software. It is well laid out and easy to follow. It can be used as a quick reference or as a learning tool for folks newer to the programs. I have a Student/Teacher Version of the software that has only Word, Excel, Power Point and Access and have already found it quite helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE THIS! June 18 2011
By L. Tucker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this about 20 minutes a day and learn something new EVERYDAY that helps me gain efficiency every day. Easy to use. Initially bought this for my husband who was afraid to do anything but type in Word. He had never used a spreadsheet, now he is a wizard at all of the programs. Had to buy another book for myself to try and keep up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for the beginner, but that's about it. Jan. 25 2007
By Vincent E. Earl - Published on Amazon.com
If you are looking for in-depth instruction on the more advanced features in Microsoft Office 2003, this is not the book for you. If you've never used a computer before, this will be a great reference. In either case, however, the humor is cheesy and often exhibits extremely poor judgment on the part of the author. If you're easily offended, find something else.
