Introducing Microsoft Office Professional 2010

 

Microsoft Office 2010 is a comprehensive system of programs, servers, services, and
solutions, including a dozen desktop productivity programs that you can install on
your computer, and four new online program versions. To meet the varying needs
of individuals and organizations, Microsoft offers five different Office 2010 software
suites, each consisting of a different subset of programs. The following table identifies
the programs available in each of the software suites.

Office Standard and Office Professional Plus are available only to volume licensing
subscribers. The Office Web Apps, which are available with Office Standard and Office
Professional Plus, and available to the general public through Windows Live, are online
versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. You can store documents online and
work with them from within any Web browser window by using the Office Web Apps.

This book provides instructional material for the following programs, which together
form the Office Professional 2010 software suite:


Microsoft Word 2010 A word-processing program with which you can quickly
and efficiently author and format documents.
Microsoft Excel 2010 A spreadsheet program with which you can analyze,
communicate, and manage information.
Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 A program with which you can develop and present
dynamic, professional-looking slide presentations.
Microsoft OneNote 2010 A digital notebook program with which you can collect,
organize, and quickly locate many types of electronic information.
Microsoft Outlook 2010 A personal information management program with which
you can manage e-mail, contacts, meetings, tasks, and other communications.
Microsoft Access 2010 A database program with which you can collect information
and output information for reuse in a variety of formats.
Microsoft Publisher 2010 A desktop publishing program with which you can lay
out newsletters, cards, calendars, and other publications.

The information in this book applies to these programs in all the software suites. If you
have a software suite other than Office Professional, or if you installed one or more of
these programs independently of a software suite, this is the right book for you.

Certification
Desktop computing proficiency is increasingly important in today’s business world. When
screening, hiring, and training employees, more employers are relying on the objectivity
and consistency of technology certification to ensure the competence of their workforce.
As an employee or job seeker, you can use technology certification to prove that you
already have the skills you need to succeed. A Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) is an
individual who has demonstrated worldwide skill standards through a certification exam
in one or more of the Office 2010 programs, including Microsoft Access, Excel, Outlook,
PowerPoint, or Word. To learn more about the MOS program, visit the Microsoft Office
Specialist Certification page at go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=193884.

The chapters of this book that cover Microsoft Word 2010, Excel 2010, PowerPoint 2010,
