Fairly soon a DVD containing Microsoft Office 2010 will be sent to ISU Extension county and REED offices and specific campus offices. This DVD is for use in your office to upgrade from Microsoft Office 2007 to 2010.
Although you can choose to upgrade at this time, you do not have to upgrade. However, if you're still using Office 2003, you should consider upgrading now.
File formats have not changed between MS Office 2007 and 2010 so you can have different people in the office on different versions of Office and still pass files back and forth.
Some of the changes for Office 2010 include:
--Adding the Ribbon to Outlook
--File tab (replaces the Office button in 2007)
--Print preview automatically appears when you print
--New screen capturing and clipping tools
--New animations in Powerpoint 2010
If you currently maintain a virtual office and would like to upgrade to Office 2010, you will need to contact your local county or affiliated campus office and arrange a time to come in and upgrade using their Office 2010 DVD.
If you need help upgrading to Office 2010, you can contact the ISU computer support hotline at 515-294-1725 or firstname.lastname@example.org
