Office 2007

is there any program or add in that makes office 2003, or at least outlook 2003, look like office 2007?

There isn't a lot of difference in the appearance of Outlook 2007 and 2003. Outlook 2007 doesn't use the Ribbon.

:-), I like the shiny effect on it, but it does use the ribbon in the new message window, and new calendar object window. :-) many like the new look, so it would be nice to have something that makes it for office 2003 that may not wish to upgrade and spare lots of money.

I have been thinking the other way, ie 2007 looking like 2003. I just don't see the advantage in all this new ribbon stuff it's to confusing, I like the colors and a few other things bur I wish that M$oft had let you keep the old style if you wanted. They did that sort of thing with Windows XP being able to look like Win98SE.

Yeah, that is a point, if u want it to look like 2003 then there is a useful peice of software called Classic Menu: its an add in, download it here.

But does anyone have any ideas on the opposite.

Cant find any, but there again other than you who would want to work in a new way after all that sorting out and getting the old style working the way it needs to for you.

I for one keep thinking about going back to Office 2003 and dumping Office 2007 because it is to confusing. I will give it another week or two, if I don't feel comfortable with 2007 by then out it goes.
