Is there a way to customize your own MS Office 2007 suite?

The standard suite contains excel, word, powerpoint, and outlook. The office, home and student suite contains excel, word, powerpoint, and onenote.

But is there a way to get both outlook and onenote, in addition to excel, word, and powerpoint?

I know you can download a trial version of individual programs from the office website, but when you go to activate them do you pay for just each program you downloaded or for the suite that contains those programs (plus others you did not download trials for)?

Thanks.

Hi, CelestialTeardrop.

Take a look at this MS Chart that shows which apps come in the differet Office 2007 Suites. To get the apps you mentioned altogether, it looks like you'll have to go with Ultimate or Enterprise. Here's an Office 2007 Suites Price Chart.

If you need anything else, please post back.

Thanks for the info. It looks like the best deal would be to get the Home and Student suite, and buy Outlook separately.

Thanks again :whistling:

Sorry to bring back an old topic...

Something seems odd with the Office 2007 pricing.

"Home and Student" is $149

"Standard" is $399

"Outlook" (not in a suite) is $109

If the only difference between "Home/Student" and "Standard" is OneNote (which is only slightly cheaper when bought by itself than Outlook) instead of Outlook, why is there such a dramatic price difference?

Most importantly:
Are the programs included in the "Home and Student" edition not the full versions/have features missing?

The prices for Office 2007 suites are in line with the pricing for the Office 2003 suites. Microsoft has historically (at least back to Office 97) offered a basic/limited set of apps in the Office line at a huge discount and called it "Student/Teacher Edition". In 2007, they call it "Home and Student". I believe these are exactly the same as the versions you might purchase individually or in one of the other suites. Here's a link to Microsoft's page for Office Home and Student 2007.

Microsoft sets the prices for individual apps and suites in such a way as to encourage the buyer to to purchase a suite. I always buy Professional because I use Access and it just doesn't make sense to pay for it separately.

If this doesn't answer your questions, please post back.
