Office 2007 Nightmare RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm struggling to understand how to change the menu structure shown in Office 2007 Excel & Word so that is resembles the menu layout used in Office 2000 & Office 2003.

    In a new computer installation where we have a Trial of Office 2007 enabled, the user has gone ballistic over the extent of changes in the menus for these two critical applications.  As of now, I've been instructed to remove Office 2007 from her new Vista Ultimate Notebook and install Office 2003 unless I can get the menus to go back to the same place.

    This person is a professional who uses Excel extensively and says, "I don't have time to struggle for hours trying to learn a new menu layout and still not find what I need.  Please make the menus the same or remove this version from the computer."

    Can you show me how to get the menus to look and be near functionally the same as Office 2003/2000 before we trash this new Office installation?
