Microsoft Office XP introduces a host of new features designed to complement all your favorite Office applications. The bulk of these changes are found in Word 2002, the latest version of Microsoft's ubiquitous word processing program. New features like task panes, smart tags, and integrated e-mail are designed to increase both personal and professional productivity, creativity, and efficiency.

Task panes are dynamic windows that pop up in response to specific actions you're performing within a document, such as paragraph formatting or using mail merge options. Similarly, smart tags are icons that appear when you perform a particular task--simply hover your mouse over them and a drop-down menu of options will appear.

Smart tags really come into play in Word 2002, greatly expanding your options. For example, you can now place your mouse over a contact name in a letter and the menu allows you to send that person an e-mail, open their entry in your contact book in Outlook, refer to outstanding schedule commitments, and so on.

Other exciting innovations include the ability to select multiple, unconnected chunks of text (so you can cut and paste two unconnected paragraphs in one go), and the Reveal Formatting task pane, which lets you see all the formats and styles on a given selection. Use the Drawing Canvas to position pictures within a document, check out the Diagram Gallery to add business diagrams, or insert professional clip art from the Clip Organizer.

While there is only so much you would want to change in a word processing package, which is designed for simply and quickly writing documents, Microsoft has managed to improve upon an already well-executed application. --John Rennie--This review refers to the full version ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Word 2002 - if you upgrade to it say goodbye to macros
Microsoft Word is a very good word processor, but if you use to work with macros, I strongly advise against upgrade to Word 2002. This version of the most famous word processor seems to be a step back instead forward. At least my experience with it says so.

In older versions of Word you are able to record macros by performing a sequence of actions. In Word 2002 you can do the same, but with one important difference: macro does not remember font attributes like underline, italic, bold, style, font etc. If you're a PC guru you may probably be able to repair such incomplete macro by entering Visual Basic Editor, but if you aren't, you'll probably be helpless.

Word 2002 has also some other bad characteristics. One of them is the size of its files. A 34 Mb Word 97 file fattened to enormous 49Mb in Word 2002 and a 55 Kb file to 70 Kb.
Another is a fact that almost all of the Spelling&Grammar and Auto Text options are turned on by default. If you're not an English or an American, you need to do a lot of clicking before you can begin to work with Word normally. And poor you if you don't know what to turn off to make auto corrections and other disturbing features disappear. Try to imagine what happens if you write in Slovenian language with the English spell checker turned on! Microsoft should bear in mind that only (small) part of the world is English speaking and writing.

There are also some troubles with cut and paste (Clipboard memory seems to be unreliable).

I gave Word 2002 4 stars for its basic word processing features, but only 1 star for its macros and reliability, and again only 1 star for its price. Together it's 2 stars.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor
i think this product was very poor, it is well over priced, and sould come as standad on new computers

1-0 out of 5 stars Use a typewriter instead
If you are familiar with Word, this is just more of the same bugginess and I don't know why you're still looking at using this program. If you have never used Word before, see if you can try it somewhere before buying it. It's fine for letter writing, but can not be used to create documents that require numbers, bullets, or frequent changes in fonts and formatting. Macros you record to use custom keyboard shortcuts to invoke format changes don't work reliably either, so you are constantly struggling with the broken formatting features to make simple format changes. These formatting features simply do not work. The software pre-thinks everything you are trying to do and decides for you what your document will look like; where the bullets will go, what they will look like, how they will be indented, and sometimes it decides you can't use them at all. It does the same with numbering. You will want to tear your hair out. I am simply stunned that Microsoft has the nerve to charge money for this software. It is awful.

2-0 out of 5 stars Buggy to the extent of being unusable
I've been using Microsoft Word since 1985. I don't even remember the version(s) of DOS Word I used. For the most part, I found it worked in many areas better than anything else. It wasn't better than WordPerfect 5.1 for DOS, but then again, neither was most any software ever written. But Word XP/2002 is trash and I refuse to use it anymore. As I have been a Microsoft defender for years, that should tell you something.

First, the outline numbering feature doesn't work. It hasn't worked since Word 97. If you want something in the form of I.A.1.a, etc., you better be prepared to do it by hand because while the outline styles will format correctly, the numbering will be off. You will have an a)1 and a)2, followed by a b)3 and b)4, as the number won't reset. I have been on the phone with Microsoft tech support at least 5 times over this one issue and none of the techs know 1/10th the Word I know. That in itself is frustrating, but the most frustrating part is 30 minutes into the conversation, they will say something like "well, you have to click on feature ____ under the _____ window." Of course, I had already done that and it didn't work, hence the call in the first place. And, yes, I've reinstalled, and the system is state of the art (and then some).

Now, Word likes to lock up on occassion. Not a real lockup like Windows locking up, but you can't use the keyboard or type in Word. For some reason, when I do a cut and paste or a c&p special, the document will lock up. If I wait, I can then type a letter or a few letters, then it will lock up again. I refuse to call MS tech support, and have posted this on a web site, but apparantly can't explain it well enough. The best way to describe it is the mouse pointer disappears, and no keyboard function works. I can move to a different application, and sometimes when returning to Word, it will start to work, but only for a few characters. I charge by the hour, but I can't bill clients for buggy software and time spent adapting to it. Until I find my copy of WordPerfect I had, I downloaded Open Office to do documents in.

When it does work, the windows that appears sometimes on cut and paste functions is terribly annoying. And I don't care to speak to the rest of the features in this program (read my review of Word 2000 if you want to see that) since I can't get even the basic features to work right. I say stay the heck away from this or other MS products until they write stuff worth a darn.

I don't know what's worse: the fact that MS released a new product as buggy as this or that they haven't fixed known bugs from a product released 2 cycles ago.

2-0 out of 5 stars More is worse
Every time Microsoft dinks with Word and creates a new version, their geniuses take out or modify features users have come to depend on. Thus Word becomes less user friendly and more cantankerous.

After trying Word 2002, our office is switching to FrameMaker 7.0. The learning curve was much gentler than we expected, and the power to create simple documents and complicated tech manuals that number correctly is beyond price. The new version of Word finally forced us to change and we'll never look back. ... Read more

WordPerfect Family Pack 5 continues a tradition of great products bundled at a great value for the family. Focusing on everyone in the home from Mother to child, the applications puts lots emphasis on educations, with Electronic encylopedias and tools to type elegant reports and letters using WordPerfect. Quattro Pro for Spreadsheets.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent value! Great product!
As a lover of WordPerfect since version 4.0 for DOS, I am thrilled that Corel makes this product available via the Family Pack's an amazing value. Superior to MS Word in almost every way, WordPerfect is as intuitive as software can get. If you're a fan of Quattro Pro (& I'm not), that product is included as well.

If your requirements for an office "suite" are limited to a word processor, spreadsheet & contact manager, you get great value in this box. If you simply want an extremely powerful word processor without the "bloat" in other packages, you can't go wrong with this latest release of WordPerfect. ... Read more

US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan Product Description

AppleWorks 6.2 combines six core capabilities--word processing, page layout, painting, spreadsheet, database, and presentation--in one easy application. By seamlessly integrating these capabilities with Apple's QuickTime digital technologies, AppleWorks 6.2 makes it easy to incorporate text, spreadsheets, digital photos, images, sounds, and movies into a single document.

Sharing documents is a breeze with AppleWorks 6.2. New translators for Microsoft Word and Excel files let you open and modify these files from within AppleWorks. You can even save AppleWorks documents in these formats to share with friends and colleagues.

If you're running AppleWorks 6.2 on Mac OS X you'll notice additional benefits. Preemptive multitasking means that you can work on AppleWorks projects while iTunes rips your CD collection in the background, and your system will still stay responsive. The advanced Quartz graphics system in Mac OS X lets you save your print previews of any AppleWorks document as a PDF file. Anyone with Adobe Acrobat Reader on any platform can view and print these PDF files.

An expanding library of templates--stored on the Internet--can be downloaded via AppleWorks 6.2 without launching a browser or decompressing files. Many of the templates are designed by affiliated organizations, such as the AppleWorks Users Group, and new templates are added regularly. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good software, well, the best for me.
It is amazing software, really smart and pleasure to use. There are some things to improve to my taste, but overall it is definitely worth the money. In two hours of the actual using it appears by far more convenient that notorious MS Office. Extremely rich applications fulfilled by right tools. It is not overwhelmed with unneeded garbage but with smart and well organized things.
As one reviewer has mentioned it isn't Word. it is better. You don't have a filling that some one staying and breathing into your neck.
BTW, MS Word brought wrong habits and misleading conceptions, but if you know how to work , this one is much more productive tool.
All pieces well coordinated and inter working.
Very recommend. The interface a bit different and a few things to learn, but since you started to use it there is no way to back to MS Office. MS Office has more features in the same way as track has more horsepower, but will you drive it on vacation rather than coupe ?
One more thing to say, there is no any issues with MS Office compatibility. I converted many different documents and had no difficulties at all.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's not Word.
Let me make one thing clear: AppleWorks is not Microsoft Word. It is not Microsoft Office. And it is not a substitute for Word or Office, just as a Honda Civic isn't a substitute for a Hummer. It is, however, much easier to use, much less intrusive, and much less expensive. If you need Microsoft Office's features, by all means buy a copy. If you need to exchange files with Office users, it's probably a good idea to buy Office. But If you need to get work done quickly and easily, grab a copy of AppleWorks. All the modules (Word processor, graphics, spreadsheet, and presentation) are seamlessly integrated. Screen clutter is minimal (though the toolbars could be smaller.) Basic (and I stress basic) compatibility with Word and Excel files is included. But its strongest point is its ability to stay out of your way: it doesn't try to reformat your work to suit it's own ends, or make grammatical decisions for you, and the on-line help is helpful, not intrusive.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use with many good features.
A great application. If you don't want to spend the extra money and get Office X then this is the application for you. It's very easy to use and has a lot of great features like templates and clip art plus, you can make your own templates and clip art. It has many features that Office X has except it doesn't have grammar check. That is the only draw back but half the time I never paid attention to it when using Office 2000 for windows so this isn't a big deal for me. I have converted many documents from Office 2000 to AppleWorks with no problems. I also use it for college and I have yet to feel the need to get Office X. Some other features it has are spell check, a word counter, and it can read back your documents to you!! Try it out. You won't be sorry! I use this application on an iBook running Mac OS X 10.2.4

5-0 out of 5 stars Great upgrade from office mac
I am a computer programmer and have been using MS Office since office 97 was released. I bought an Ibook 2 weeks ago in order to get away from the Wintel platform (and Linux too). The appleworks program is great it lets me create documents that MS Office can read and will also open MS documents. AppleWorks (as far as I can tell) has all the power of MS Office and is way easier to use. I have only been using it for a couple of weeks and can already create better documents faster using appleworks. I have not used the presentation part of AppleWorks yet but I assume its as good as the rest but, for presentations I reccommend keynote.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth your money!
...Appleworks Office does everything I want an office program to do and it's stable and reliable. (I'm running system 9.2 on a G4). Another reviewer claims it isn't compatable with other programs, but fails to give any useful specifics, such as what programs and how it isn't compatable with them. I ignored that review and bought this software, and I'm glad I did. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Time-Saver
Writing a screenplay can be a very daunting task, especially for someone who is not familiar with the format. Before purchasing Final Draft, my previous screenplays were written in your basic, custom-formated Microsoft Word document.

Final Draft 6 does it all the formating for you. A function called "SmartType" finishes off character names for you, so you don't have to keep typing in names. This is wonderful when you have two or three characters talking to each other in a string, so you can quickly type the conversation, as if it were going on in front of you.

When I transferred my previous screenplays into Final Draft, it took about an hour or so to reformat a 106-page document correctly. Final Draft was able to interperate about 80% of the formatting correctly, getting confused on mostly transitions and telling the difference between some scene headings and actions. Although, it knew exactly what was dialogue just by where it was placed in the word document, which I thought was remarkable.

Some of the templates for actual T.V. shows are a little silly, but they serve their purpose: giving you the raw format for a certain show, which can vary greatly depending on the series. If you have your own show you've created, you can save a blank document with the initial beginings of the script as a template and be able to have a fresh document ready for your next episode.

Final Draft is a great purchase for the novice screen writer learning the format, and a wonderful time-saver for the somewhat-established to established veteran.

2-0 out of 5 stars Final Draft 6 Needs Revision
Even though it remains the Hollywood standard, Final Draft 6 leaves a lot to be desired. For lack of a decent alternative, I've used this application for the better part of a decade, and it remains clumsy to use and well behind the curve of technology.

The big issue: Onscreen text looks atrocious. After a year on the market, Final Draft 6 still doesn't use Mac OS X's technology to render beautiful anti-aliased text. Third-party fixes, like Silk, work only halfway to solve Final Draft's shortcomings. But should an application that costs $ need fixing at all? Unacceptable.

And beware of WYSIWYDG, or "What You See Is What You Don't Get." You might find the perfect font in the Font Menu, but good luck applying it to your screenplay. Worse, there are occasional text hiccups, where the text-rendering is garbled and screen redrawing is skewed.

'Authorization' remains a nuisance, too. (Bet you didn't remember to 'deauthorize''before a system reinstall or upgrade.) I know of no other software that requires such an unwieldy process just to stay running smoothly.

Final Draft 6 is still better than a typewriter or a standard word processor for writing scripts, but not by much. Considering the steep price, maybe it's time to revisit the competition.

1-0 out of 5 stars Quirky program made useless by copy protection
Buyer beware: Final Draft incorporates an archaic copy protection scheme that will drive you nuts. Every other category of computer software did away with this kind of user-unfriendly copy protection scheme in the mid-80s, but the screenwriting software vendors persist. You're probably better off using Microsoft Word (which is far more robust) and using a simple formatting utility when you're project is finished. If you have any hard drive crashes or hardware upgrades and you forget to de-install Final Draft you will lose your install keys. Tech support is scarce and the online help system is only good for the most basic information. While it should make your life simpler this product will make your life hell. Avoid it like the plague.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best investment I've made for writing.
I purchased Final Draft a couple of years ago, and it was the best investment for writing I've made yet. I had loads of story ideas in my head, but had no idea how to write a screenplay or teleplay, and didn't have the patience to read a book about it.

I am a VERY basic computer user and feared formatting software would be nothing short of a nightmare, but within a month I formatted three one-hour teleplays, started on a screenplay, and knew how to navigate the software fairly well. The Smart-type feature is a lifesaver, and the various view, outline, and report features are incredibly helpful and save loads of time.

There are a few features that were more complicated to learn, and as an absolute novice I had some questions that I couldn't find answers for in the program, but overall - I'm thrilled with it and use it everyday.

I'd recommend this software to anyone, rank amateur or paid professional ,who's looking for a user-friendly, helpful, and reliable formatting system.

5-0 out of 5 stars There's a reason the whole world uses it -- it's the best
Final Draft is simply the best there is. Screenwriter is buggy [I borrowed an install from a friend], Scriptware is a joke [based on the demo I tried] and Sophocles doesn't even run on my Mac. If you follow the directions it does exactly what it says it's going to do. It's a professional-grade tool [even though I'm not a professional-grade writer - YET], it's got 24/7 help [that I haven't even come close to needing] and everyone I know uses it [and I do work in the industry]. As far as I can tell the people who have problems with it aren't using it right or they have crappy computers.

Don't mess around with other programs. This one is the one to use. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value on SUPER Software Bundle!
The Corel WordPerfect Family Pack is super value for anyone not needing a full professional office software suite (such as WordPerfect Office Professional or MS Office). The WordPerfect 10 wordprocessor is easy for the the beginner -- with the "Perfect Expert" to help and prompt you to your completion. Yet, it's fully featured for the advanced user. Included is Dragon NaturallySpeaking for WordPerfect, a utility that you train to your voice so that you can talk and it will type!! Also included is the Quattro Pro 10 (spreadsheet program), Avery DesignPro (similar to PrintShop), online Encyclopedia Brittanica, and McAfee VirusScan (virus checker).

It's a deal super deal for a super software bundle!

5-0 out of 5 stars A terrific alternative to microsoft.
Personally, I dislike thinking that I absolutely must buy only Microsoft products just because they dominate the market. Frankly, I don't like feeling like a sheep and so I avoid Microsoft products whenever a viable alternative is available. Corel's WordPerfect Family Pack 4 presents a very viable alternative at a quite reasonable price. I've been a fan of the various versions of WordPerfect for more than a decade and it's still my word processor of choice -- and would be even if I weren't rebelling against the dominance of Microsoft. If you can cope with using something good that isn't what virtually everyone else uses, I think you'll like this product -- and save some money as well.

3-0 out of 5 stars Can' Figure It Out
Although I was able to use this software on my old computer, when I tried to install it on my new computer the serial number I had already used on the old computer was rejected on the new one. I was able to install one CD out of four without keying in the serial number. I emailed and they were of no help even though I'm registered with them. So I say, the heck with it. I'll continue using my Microsoft wordprocessing software.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not the full version of WP 10!
This package states that it comes with WordPerfect 10 and nowhere does it say that it is anything but the FULL version. But it is NOT! After installing, I was astounded to learn that there is NO search function (Quickfinder)! I don't consider searching files to be some "full featured professional" function that can just be dropped from a "home" version-- it's pretty basic stuff. How Corel can just drop it is beyond me. Oh sure, it may be some third-party software that would have additional licensing fees, but give me a break! What good is a word processor without the ability to search its own files?!?! Shame on COREL!

1-0 out of 5 stars Unsupported Crippleware
Corel claims this product contains WP10. The version is not the same as that shipped with its office products. It is slow. Generation of pdf files brings a 1.2 GHz, 512 MB mem system to its knees. It hangs while printing. Patches are not apparent on the Corel web site. ... Read more

Whether saying "no" to Microsoft's hegemony or keeping the tradition of sleek and powerful software alive, users moving on up to WordPerfect Office 2002 Standard Edition can take pride in their choice. The core suite includes WordPerfect 10, the Quattro Pro 10 spreadsheet program, Corel Presentations 10, and the CorelCENTRAL 10 personal information manager (PIM); each of these meets or exceeds the qualities of their competitors.

Accessories like the Pocket Oxford Dictionary and Corel's Application Recovery Manager make life easier for users and administrators alike. The advanced voice recognition software and microphone help eliminate the risk of repetitive stress and improve one's diction simultaneously (mumblers need not apply).

Pretty much every file type we've ever heard of can be imported and exported, so longtime users of other software should have a relatively seamless transition. The look and feel will be familiar to users of Microsoft Office, though quirks in hot keys, commands, and toolbars will take a few days to master. This might be the only reason not to switch from Microsoft--inertia can be difficult to overcome and novice users may resent learning new tools. However, the strengths, including Adobe PDF publishing, Microsoft's VBA scripting, Web compatibility, and networked file sharing, should convince most open-minded users to consider the merits of WordPerfect Office 2002. --Rob Lightner--This review refers to the Professional Edition ...

3-0 out of 5 stars More than sufficient suite for most people
It's a testimony to how far this once great produce has fallen that there are only 18 reviews posted as of my writing.

I'm a WP user from back when it and Lotus 1-2-3 were THE killer apps. Though I own WP 2000, I tend to use MS Office. Here's why:
* Excel is far more powerful and has a better interface than Quattro Pro
* PowerPoint is head-and-shoulders easier to use than Presentations
* CorelCentral PIM is virtually worthless compared to Outlook
* Presentations does not preserve formatting of PowerPoint files
* WordPerfect struggles to preserve formatting for Word docs if there are tables (particularly with merged cells) or outlines in the Word doc

* Paradox is an easy tool for learning about relational databases; it is far easier to use than Access, though not as powerful
* WordPerfect drawing tools are superior to MS Word drawing tools
* WordPerfect is still better for laying out complex documents; the 'reveal codes' feature alone is invaluable--why didn't MS copy that somewhere along the way?
* It costs less

If you do not have to exchange files with MS Office users and do not need advanced spreadsheet or advanced presentations features, get WP Suite. WordPerfect is as good as Word. And Quattro Pro and Presentations have great basic and good intermediate functionality.

If you regularly exchange files with MS Office users but do not need to put tables or other complex formatting in your Word document, get WordPerfect.

But if you really need file compatibility with Office and/or advanced spreadsheet and presentation capability, Office is a better choice than WordPerfect. But there is an alternative...

As much as I would like WordPerfect to survive as a viable alternative to Microsoft's empire, Corel is on its last leg and WP has steadily lost market share over the last 10 years to the point that I don't see how Corel can afford to produce and support it. Sun's StarOffice (available as an opensource application under the name OpenOffice) is a great alternative to MS Office. StarOffice does a far better job of exchanging docs with MS Office.

4-0 out of 5 stars Better but only after you flush WP9 out of your computer
I hated WP10. I have used Word Perfect since the first Windows addition but this was worse than version 8 which was a disaster. But then I found out that my problem was that I needed to take WP9 out of my computer before installing the upgrade. Looks like the Word Perfect folk could and should have made that automatic. But once you do that it seems to run much better with very few problems. I also have Microsoft Windows 2000 in my computer. Wordperfect is superior, especially for desk top publishing.

1-0 out of 5 stars Tempted to switch over to MS Word
As a steadfast user of Wordperfect for several years, I had hoped to continue this good relationship with the newest version. Instead, I have found frustration and feel that I am better acquainted with the "recovery wizard" that any of the "new and improved" features of this product. Frustrations abound as the program crashes once, twice, dozens of times as I attempt to go about my daily work. These crashes do not occur as I attempt to utilize the more sophisticated features; merely attempting to open a file seems to befuddle this flawed program. Is it just me or do others out there feel that the Corel company computers must be filled to bursting with their recovery wizard reports?

Good luck with the rebates. I'm still waiting for my Corel rebate that I mailed in June.

1-0 out of 5 stars Save Your Money--Even With Discounts
I have been a steadfast user of WordPerfect since Version 5.0. As a journal editor, I receive manuscripts written in Word 2000 or WordPerfect. WordPerfect is the superior work processor in my experience.

However, the current "upgrade" from WordPerfect 9 to version 10 isn't worth the expenditure. The bugs in WP9 are mostly still there. I have found very little improvement in WP10 with respect to manuscript preparation, graphics, and file management. As one who uses Windows XP, I don't find WP10 fully compatible. Accessing a WP10 file can turn into a frustrating experience when the system goes into some kind of unresolvable loop, forcing an exit from WP10. I am also frustrated that the Corel calendar keeps trying to insert itself at system startup, even though I had indicated to the contrary during WP10 installation.

I will continue to use WordPerfect, but have decided to drop back to WP 9. The frustrations are fewer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Operating System May be the Problem
I have not used WP2002, but have been a WP/Corel user for years. WordPerfect is clearly a better program than MSWord and while Excel has some good features, I prefer QuattroPro which is better designed and easier to use.

I have had various stability problems when multitasking on my computer until I upgraded from Windows 98 to Windows 2000. Now I almost never crash. It would be useful to know from those who have used WP2002 what operating system they are using. I'll bet that using Windows 95 or Windows 98 with the new WP2002 may be their problem. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Instant computer geek!
First, you should know I am a card carrying Luddite, if not the Great Ned's reincarnated self. But this program is easy to install and use, even for me. Next, this has turned my PDA into the single greatest invention since the sanitar---err, sliced bread! I carry Excel spreadsheets that I routinely update on both my desktop, and my PDA (Palm500.) They automatically update their alter whenever I hotsink. I carry books I've downloaded in Word or PDF format, and I have used it to download photos onto my PDA. And all without one glitch in 1 year!

3-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good but could be better
I work with spreadsheets all the time so immediately after I got my Palm I started looking for some sort of spreadsheet program. This program works pretty good you can see Excel spreadsheets on your hand held and Word documents and edit them and copy them to your PC and vice versa. Some annoying problems, though. The program doesn't synchronize with files on the computer it mearly copies one over the other. If it detects that the file on the computer and the file on the hand held have both been modified it gives an error. Also, there are too few formulas provided. I have a spreadsheet to calculate subnet masks that will not work with this. Only the most basic formulas are provided. I called Dataviz tech support and there are no formula upgrade packs either. Lastly, the price of this is pretty spendy. I keep kicking myself when I found I could have just bought a new handheld with this software included for what I spent on this software alone!

5-0 out of 5 stars It's so easy!!
Most of the documents I receive via email are in Microsoft Word or Excel format. I work out of my car and having these documents available on my Palm has turned my car into a paperless office. It's so easy and convenient. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product!
Microsoft Office XP is a large improvement over Office 2000. Not only is the [slightly] new interface more refined, but the smarttags and more features are great. The difference between Office 2000 and XP is very similar to that of Office 97 and 2000; there are suttle changes that you do not notice until you actually need them. And when you need them, they are great to have! If you are upgrading to Office XP, then you should definately get the Special Edition (I have no idea why it is called that; it should just be called premium). I use Publisher and FrontPage almost everyday, as well as the normal Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Access (basically, I utilize every part of Office XP). I highly prefer this product over Corel WordPerfect Office 2002, or any other competitors. I am aware, there has been some concern over the Product Activiation Wizard; frankly, I do not have a problem with it. As long as it does not disclose personal information (which it does not), I don't think it's a big deal. I think that it is a good way for Microsoft to keep people from installing multiple copies of their software. Don't get me wrong; I do not like Product Activation at all, but I think that people are overreacting about the privacy concerns of it. Another thing people might be concerned about is compatibility. As far as I know, the only products whose files cannot be opened in previous versions of the same product is Publisher; a new format for saving the file was introduced in Office XP and therefore it is not compatiable with Publisher 2000 or earlier. Other than that, I definately think that Office XP is the best office suite I have used!

3-0 out of 5 stars Office
Well, actually I like Excel and hate Word. The other programs included I have little or no use for.
I use Excel all the time for engineering calculations, including writing VBA macros to automate things that I can't do easily in the cells. It's very useful, like having a calculator that remembers everything you've done, writes it down, but allows you to change inputs and recalculate everything automatically. Unfortunately, there is a bug in the help files, so I can't get Visual Basic help anymore. The IT guys at work fixed the regular help but never could get the macro help to work again. Very annoying.
Word is terrible compared to WordPerfect. What I used to be able to do with a couple of keystrokes, now takes minutes of navigation thru menus and dialog boxes. Outline formatting, numbered lists, etc. are especially frustrating in Word because nothing is obvious. You shouldn't have to get a college degree in word processing in order to learn to write a specification and get the formatting correct. One annoyance is that paragraph formatting is hidden in a selectable little space at the end of the paragraph, so if you try to delete the last few words by hitting shift-end and delete, you will delete numbering, formatting, etc. of that paragraph. Also, the thesaurus that came with WordPerfect was much better.
In general, Microsoft Office tries to be everything for every possible user, automates many tasks to do things that it thinks I want to do even though I don't, and makes it hard to figure out how to undo them.
I am using WordPerfect wherever possible and trying StarOffice.

1-0 out of 5 stars Real problems with this one..
Installed the upgrade over Office 2000 on a well equipped XP Professional system. Liked it well enough but after an online update, File->Open began taking 20-30 sec per level to navigate to the file. Unfortunately, installing this package seems to put the 'better' file menus in and everything came to a crashing halt. Worse news is that it wouldn't uninstall nor reinstall/fix (something got corrupted). A Msoft A+ beat on it a long time then finally reinstalled XP (unfortunately an all too common occurance, for lots of reasons) and all was well until I installed Office XP again. The problem recurred but this time, a system restore cleaned it up. Still using Office 2000. Now using Office XP as a gold coaster. I've heard of this happening on other systems.. something in the networking maybe.. We're using a Linux server w/Samba drive. Works great with everything else..

5-0 out of 5 stars If you want to write...
Microsoft Word on XP is the industry standard and next to Quark Express one of the most important tools of the trade.

Nothing comes close to Microsoft Word. MSWORD is as important as the invention of the pen and most importantly is compatible with nearly everything. Open up any written document. Save to any written document type. The import feature is almost flawless.

4-0 out of 5 stars Thank goodness I get a university discount
When I saw the cost of this, my jaw dropped. I didn't think it would cost so much for Word, PowerPoint, FrontPage and Excel.

I went to the university bookstore at my school to see if I could get any kind of discount on it. Thank goodness Indiana University has a contract with Microsoft!

About the program now that I've complained about the cost enough...

This is the program I use the most because for being a word processing program, it is very versatile. I can write term papers and what not with it, but I can also credit news letters complete with graphics. I have also used it to create invoices with neat graphics.

I know HTML (one of the languages webpage makers write webpages in), so I pretty much only use this program when I'm trying out something new, like frams. I have also used it to figure out HTML codes for colors, frames, and tables. I had a college instructor who used it to do her entire webpage and it looked pretty good.

I used Excel to keep track of the money I was spending on gas for 6 months, how many miles I was traveling, where I was traveling, and the cost of gas. I know it sounds like of nerdy, but it really helped me save some money on gas, knowing exactly where to stop when I was on a trip. I also has how many miles I was putting on my car in that 6 months (10,000+ miles), which explained the wear and tear.

I am just beginning to learn this. I didn't realize what a valuable program PowerPoint was until people in some of my college classes gave presentations with it. Man, my poster board presentation was nothing compared to theirs. It is actually a pretty easy program to learn, but the 'little extras' like the animation and extra graphics can take a bit of time.

I use this program to check my school e-mail because I have AOL at home. I like not having to go to the university's website, navigating my way to the mail page, signing it, and going through at least one more link, just to get to my e-mail. This program goes straight to my mailbox with no links, no navigating.

When I tried to use access to create a database of my CDs, I had a lot of problems. It is probably the only program in this software suite that I think is a total waste of disc space. I have had to use it before, but for me, I can just use Excel to make lists, it is much easier to use.

I am really glad that I have Microsoft Office. It has made school a lot easier. I can e-mail documents to my school account, download them, and know they will work with the school software. That saves me from having to reformat the assignment whenever I want to work on it at school. ... Read more

Not at all user friendly. Job categories are VERY limited and do not include several major categories in today's market!


3-0 out of 5 stars Could be better.
Winway Resume 6.0 is not very user friendly. They could've made things a lot more easier with a more advanced tool bar for short cuts. The templates are good, but I recommend allowing users to keep their font styles while they switch between themes instead of losing their font settings and having to start all over. When you make changes to font styles in certain sections (address and phone number section for example), the font changes only apply to the line you edited (address)instead of the whole section (address and phone number). I am also getting error messages from Windows 98 when I try to print:"Winway caused an invalid page fault GDI.exe the program will be terminated". Sometimes I'm able to print, but several other times the program just shuts down! I downloaded the free updates before I even tried the software. Unfortunately, none of the updates had anything to do with my current problem. I hope they get this ironed out soon. If your buying this software thinking it will get you a job, your wrong.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not just 5 stars .....5 GOLD Stars!
I had a bad experience with another brand (instant resume) and was fortunate to stumble upon your software. Talk about night and day in comparison. I had originally planned to purchase the Winway software next but was drawn toward buying your product by the retail packaging. Your software also seemed to be the hot selling product and I noticed Winway's software had some "item returned for refund" stickers on them. After installing your software I was immediately impressed by the nice looking GUI design and how easy and intuitive it was to get started using this program. Also, your software did something the other brands failed to do. It got me noticed and called in for interviews! I am pleased to say that i found a new job which I will be starting in the next 2 weeks, not to mention a bump up in salary!ResumeMaker is #1 hands down and I would recommend this software to anyone.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great resume maker. Outstanding helping tool.
This is very easy to use software that helps you use strong, descriptive words that will give you an edge when submitting resumes.
Plus, there are great video interviewing hints and tips.
Also included in a job search engine that hooks into many Internet job banks. You can search through the program and find jobs from 20 or more places by just doing one search.
Very nice and pleasant to use this resume maker. Everything worked great without any problem.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buy a book instead
This is probably the buggiest piece of software I've ever used. It has taken me about 2 to 3 times longer to get a resume I can actually use than it would have taken if I bought a decent book and typed it by hand in a word processor. There are plenty of suggested phrases and some of them are pretty good, but it looks like they just gleaned them all from existing resumes (they have an online posting service) rather than actually wrote them specifically (some have spelling and punctuation mistakes, and some are just awful).
The bugs in this program are unforgivable though:
- Some fields in the "wizard" don't transfer through to the actual resume. You end up with placholder text like, "[Enter your description of responsibilities.]"
- If you change the section style (for example try a different layout for the jobs in your experience section), you will lose everything you type into the old layout!!!! The pre-fab phrases will transfer to a "scratch pad" so you can cut and paste, but any custom edits to those phrases get tossed (changing back will wipe out your scratch pad entries, so you lose everything)

I used to work in the software industry (hence the need for such a program), and the number of tech resumes and phrases is appalling sparse, especially given the current job market. At any place I've worked, if we released a product to the public with bugs like these, we'd be fired on the spot.

Once again, I'm learning there are no shortcuts in life worth taking. Since I downloaded it, I doubt I can get my $40 back. You, on the other hand have a chance not to waste yours. If you do decide to buy it, you should eliminate applying for any accounting or finance positions ;-).

2-0 out of 5 stars No Video Functions for the Download Version! Crashes!
I bought the download version last week from individual software's official site. After using it, have the following feelings:

1. whenever i click the salary finder fuction, this program crashes. Also, there are only few salary reports in this program. Much of the salary trend charts are empty.

2. Users or buyers are not properly informed that the download version is without the video function which is available in the Cd version ( I was not informed about this term until i bought the download and saw the Help file in the prgram. The retail and download version both charges the same price. Why doesn't I have the video function too!?

3. I wrote an email to the company asking them to explain this issue to me and have never heard from them. Bad support.

4. it does not have even popular occupation resume sample like flight attendant, ticket service agent.

In conclusion, mediocre + not as advertised + bad customer support. -> wasted 40 bucks
