Microsoft Office 2007 Is Coming!
All NASA HQ Employees
February 20, 2009
In mid-March, the HQ Outsourcing Desktop Initiative for NASA (ODIN) team will begin deploying Microsoft Office 2007 to all ODIN-supported desktop and laptop Windows computers at HQ. Deployment will occur in a phased approach.
The Microsoft Office 2007 suite is a major overhaul of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Access. Office 2007 has a different look-and-feel. There are many new application features and a new user interface called the "Ribbon." Many icons and commands that you have grown accustomed to in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook have moved and will work differently in Office 2007.
Understanding Office 2007 will take time to learn. We strongly encourage you to begin reviewing support documentation and get familiar with the new features and differences. Some documentation is available on the Office 2007@HQ Web page . Training classes will be offered at HQ in lieu of the online training offered in the ODIN Program Office outreach notice sent on February 19. Training documentation and schedules are being developed and will be available soon.
You will receive a Targeted IT Notice providing detailed instructions as you are scheduled to be upgraded to Office 2007.
Should you need assistance, call the Enterprise Service Desk (ESD) at 358-HELP (4357) or 1-866-4NASAHQ (462‑7247) or send an e-mail .
