Office Versions

SharePoint works with Office versions 2000 to 2007. However, the feature sets vary a great deal among these versions. Basically, all versions allow you to save and open files from SharePoint sites through the browser; 2002 supports some integration (export list to spreadsheet); and 2003 provides full integration through the Shared Documents task pane. Table B-1 further details Microsoft Office version compatibility.
