Office 2007 Quiz - The Answers

Office 2007 Quiz - The Answers

  • Comments 6

As promised here are the answers to the Office 2007 quiz I posted last week. As before, bear in mind that the questions and answers were written 12 months ago at the launch of Office 2007. I've skimmed through them to see if any answers may have changed since that time and have only spotted one (question 9). If you see any others feel free to point them out.

Now, honestly, did anyone get 40/40 without the help of a search engine? I think some of these are tough.

  • Interesting point at blogs.msdn.com

  • I'd like to disagree on a few Ian:

    12. we rtmd on the 30th Nov I think, not the 6th

    15. MOSS with Enterprise CAL also lets you do this

    19. BDC is not a product - this is MOSS with Ent Cal again

    23. Outlook in fact has more ribbons than any other Office product

    26. It's Excel services that does this - not a server and its also part of MOSS.

    but as they say, nobody likes a smartart ;-)

  • Ian has posted the answers to his Office quiz - some of them are not quite right IMHO :-)

  • Thanks Darren. I would never dream of disagreeing with the man who *is* Office 2007 in the UK! I stand corrected.
