Microsoft Office 2003
Office 11, the codename for Microsoft Office 2003, is the name of the office suite that was developed and published by Microsoft for the Windows platform. On August 19, 2003, it was made accessible to manufacture, and on October 21, 2003, it was offered to the general public for purchase. It is the version of Microsoft Office that came before Microsoft Office 2007 and the one that came after Microsoft Office XP. Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Vista are all supported operating systems by it. This is the final version of Microsoft Office that is compatible with Windows 2000. The version that came after it, Microsoft Office 2007, is only compatible with Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, or a newer operating system.
Tablet and pen capability was added to the apps, although the key applications—Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access—received only modest enhancements from Office XP. The core applications were all named after Microsoft office programs.
Many aspects of Outlook 2003’s functionality were enhanced, including the ability to share and display information regarding emails and calendars more effectively, full support for the Unicode character set, search folders, colored flags, Kerberos authentication, RPC over HTTP, and cached exchange mode. The better junk mail filter in Outlook 2003 was yet another significant advantage of using that version of the program.
Word 2003 had, amongst other innovations, a reading layout view, document comparison, improved change-tracking and annotation/reviewing, a Research Task Pane, voice comments, and a format based on XML.
Excel 2003 was the first version to provide list commands, a few statistical functions, and tools for importing XML data, doing analysis on that data, and customizing documents.
Access 2003 added a number of new capabilities, including a backup command, the capacity to see object dependencies, error checking in forms and reports, and more.
Other improvements that were added in FrontPage 2003 include conditional formatting, Find and Replace for HTML components, new tools for creating and formatting tables and cells, dynamic templates, support for Adobe Flash, WebDAV publishing, and SharePoint publishing.
A generic color PostScript printer driver was made available for commercial printing with the release of Publisher 2003.
