Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hello Friends,

I am a Windows administrator. I work on Windows Server as well as editing all the documents required for the project.  My client asked me to upgrade from XP office to MS office. I Googled for the difference between the boat but couldn’t get a clear idea.

I want you to help me and make me know the difference between the both applications so that I can use all the advanced features in MS office and also explain my client, if I am asked.

Thanks for the ideas.

Difference between XP office andMS office



Microsoft Office is an office productivity suite for desktop application ideal for home use and office environment. The original version was Microsoft Office 2000 that contained Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint. Then comes next where the Office XP, Office 2003, Office 2007, Office 2010, and soon Office 2013.

Microsoft Office XP is an office suite for windows operating system. It was released on March 5, 2001. All the main features of MS Office are also in Office XP except that you cannot open the newer DocX format without the compatibility pack. For free compatibility pack, just check it out at www.microsoft.com. Aside from Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint – Office XP Professional includes Microsoft Access 2002, a database solution to store, access, and analyze data.

If I am to compare Office XP to Office 2003, there are more upgraded features to Microsoft Outlook in Office 2003. Microsoft InfoPath is also an added software application used to design and submit electronic forms.

I would definitely recommend you to upgrade your Office XP to Office 2010. Just type this in your navigation bar www.ehow.comthen type in the search bar “How to Upgrade MS Office XP”. I hope this will help you a lot…
