Can anyone recommend a facility that offers a course in Microsoft Office 2007, Word, Excel, Access Im pretty proficient but I dont use them to their full abilities' I called CCP, and their course is just like a interface thingy, because 2007 is different from 2003

So if anyone can recommend a course, let me know, Thanks!

If I were you, I would get hip to Vista. It's an awful operating system that's replaced 97 and XP. I would be a real poo-hoo if you learn 97 only for it to become obsolete.

Keep in mind, MS keeps

Keep in mind, MS keeps adding stuff to their products, but when it comes down to it, I think most people don't use them for anything fancier than what was offered in the 1980s 90% of the time.

If you need a certificate to show HR types, that's different. You'll have to do the whole course routine.

Microsoft actually offers

Microsoft actually offers some decent (and free) self-training courses and resources, if you're comfortable working with that sort of thing...
