Microfot Office 2003
As with my Windows Server 2003 Editions comparison, Microsoft also has its own table comparing the various Office 2003 editions, but that version is incomplete, hard to read, and poorly organized. So here is my own comparative set of tables, which I think you'll find to be much more readable and useful.
Note: Some Office 2003 applications are not available in any suite editions. These products include Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003, Microsoft Office OneNote 2003, Microsoft Office Publisher 2003 with Digital Imaging, Microsoft Office Project Standard Edition 2003, Microsoft Office Project Professional Edition 2003, Microsoft Office Visio Standard Edition 2003, and Microsoft Office Visio Professional Edition 2003.
SYMPTOMOne of the Microsoft Office programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook, etc) is behaving oddly, or not working at all.CAUSEA necessary office file may have been deleted, or a file used by the office application was corrupted during a program crash. SOLUTIONIf the program can be opened, go to the Help menu and select Detect and Repair. Office will go through and attempt to find missing or corrupted files.If the application will not start at all, or the procedure above does not work, try the following:Insert the MS Office Disc 1 CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive
If setup does not start automatically, run the Setup program. (My Computer > CD-ROM Drive Letter > Setup.exe)
Select Repair when the Office Installer Screen appears.
Outlook 2003 received improved functionality in many areas, including better email and calendar sharing and information display, complete Unicode support, search folders, colored flags, Kerberos authentication, RPC over HTTP, and Cached Exchange mode. Another key benefit of Outlook 2003 was the improved junk mail filter.
Word 2003 introduced a reading layout view, document comparison, better change-tracking and annotation/reviewing, a Research Task Pane, voice comments, and an XML-based format, among other features.
FrontPage 2003 introduced conditional formatting, Find and Replace for HTML elements, new tools for creating and formatting tables and cells, dynamic templates, Adobe Flash support, WebDAV and SharePoint publishing, among other features.
The Tools for Your Job content is optimized for Office 2003 customers and is available at . Users of previous versions of Office can access existing solutions that complement their tools and view the new Office 2003 solutions pages, including demos, on the Web at this location as well.
Using the Office drawing tools is an easy way to enhance any document. Whether you are adding color to text or adding shapes and 3-D effects, the Office drawing tools make it easy for any user. This document gives instructions on how to access the Drawing toolbar and defines the toolbar options available in Office 2003.
In order to provide the best possible combination of functionality and supportability, Oracle is announcing de-support of Office 2003 products and file formats. This is consistent with Oracle's Third Party Vendor-Specific Support Terms in Oracle Software Technical Support Policies and Microsoft's stated support lifecycle for Office 2003:
Over the past several releases, Oracle Business Intelligence has supported Office 2007, Office 2010 and the newer Office XML file formats (*.xlsx, pptx, *.docx) . Customers are strongly encouraged to use the Office XML formats and the Microsoft Office versions that support those formats.Starting with Oracle Business Intelligence 126.96.36.199, Oracle will begin removing functionality that supports Office 2003 products and file formats. The following sections describe details for each product and component.
Market research firm Forrester Research has just published a report that shows Microsoft has little to fear from the free office application suites gunning for Office's dominion, though the company will also have a devil of a time uprooting Office 2003.
Forrester surveyed 155 clients about their currently deployed productivity suites in their offices. The survey found Office 2010 is used by nearly 85% of the surveyed companies, with hefty overlap of other versions. What that means is Office 2010 and 2013 are slowly replacing older versions, just not very quickly.
The bad news is that 28% were using Office 2003 or earlier (presumably XP). That's not good news. Office XP is no longer supported and Microsoft plans to end support for Office 2003 on April 2014. Once those applications are out of active support, any exploits uncovered by cybercrooks will not be fixed.
There's bad news for supporters of free office suites like OpenOffice and LibreOffice. OpenOffice had just a 3% share, down from 13% in 2011, while LibreOffice was a mere 2%. Bringing up the rear was Corel Office, which still exists, but holds 1% market share. Google Docs is doing an OK job with 9% share, but Office 365, Microsoft's on-demand version for consumers and small offices, has 14% share.
One area not catching fire is tablets. Apps on iOS and Android devices were rated important by just 16% of respondents, and support for non-Windows PCs was important to only 11%. For now, Forrester says, most technology decision-makers seem satisfied with leaving employees to self-provision office productivity apps on their smartphones and tablets if they really want them.
As for the old versions, I suspect these are smaller firms that can't afford to migrate, although it could also be what kept me on 2003 for so long: a dislike of the ribbon interface added with Office 2007. I know which I prefer, and that might be the same for other people as well.
Recently I wrote an article explaining how to Password Protect Office 2007 Documents. Because the process is so much different, I felt it necessary to write a separate article for Password Protecting (and encrypting) a Word 2003, Excel 2003, or PowerPoint 2003 document. Just follow the simple step-by-step process below to quickly Password Protect/Encrypt your Office 2003 Documents (.doc, .xls, .ppt).
Nope. Not with Office 2003, 2007 or 2010. There really is no way to password protect a folder using Office. You can however talk to your IT administrator and setup NTFS permissions to give everyone only read access (and you read/write) so they cannot delete anything in the folder on the share drive. This is actually VERY easy to do.
Can I prevent Microsoft office from displaying local hyperlink warnings. I have created DWORD=DisableHyperlinkWarning and I have set value to 1.I have also done the same to Policies.The warnings are still there.I am using Access 2003
but i find just Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word For Version 188.8.131.52 (For Office 2007) And Version 184.108.40.206 (For Office 2010). And Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word For Office 2003 Version Does Not Exist in My VS Library.
For Interop the office assembly, you need to install the office on the machine. You have installed Office 2007 and 2010 on your machine, so you are not able to find office 2007 version assemblies in reference.
To protect a worksheet or file in Excel 2003, click Tools > Protection, and choose your preferred protection method: Protect Sheet, Allow Users to Edit Ranges, Protect Workbook, or Protect and Share Workbook. If you choose the first option, you're prompted to enter a password to unlock the sheet, and you can limit the actions people can take when working on the sheet. The second selection opens a dialog box in which you can specify the ranges that will be unlocked by a password by clicking New and entering the ranges. You can allow specific people to edit, or list the users who can't edit the range without a password by clicking Permissions and entering their user or group names. The third and fourth options are similar to the first, but apply to the entire workbook rather than a specific worksheet.
In PowerPoint 2003, click Tools > Options > Security, enter a password that will let the presentation be opened or modified, and click the Advanced button to select an encryption type. This dialog box also lets you remove hidden data from the file, and adjust your macro security settings (the default allows only signed macros from trusted sources, though this is of questionable value since "trusted sources" is pretty meaningless).
Outlook 2003's security options let you encrypt outgoing attachments, restrict the sites that can send you scripts and active content (the same list that's in your Internet Options), and limit the receipt of images and file downloads. But two of the most important things you can do to protect yourself from malware in Outlook are to turn off the Reading Pane (aka Preview Pane), and to view your mail as plain text. To deactivate the Reading Pane, click View > Reading Pane > Off. And to switch from HTML mail to the safer plain text, click Tools > Options > E-mail Options, check Read all standard mail in plain text, and click OK. When you want to view a message in its original HTML format, click the beige message bar across the top of the message window and select Display as HTML.
With Office 2003, Microsoft plans to drop the Developer edition. The Office XP Developer edition included all the applications bundled with Office XP Professional, along with additional tools such as Microsoft's FrontPage Web site creation and management software, which the company will continue to sell as a stand-alone product.
Microsoft plans instead to encourage developers to use a new set of tools, tentatively named "Visual Studio Tools for Office," that will be released in conjunction with Office 2003, said Simon Marks, product manager for Microsoft Office.
In contrast, Office 2003 Small Business Edition will be widely available through a number of channels, including retailers, and will include everything in the Standard Edition along with several additional applications.
