Older workbooks

The Microsoft Office Training team is working hard to update workbooks written for older versions of Office, and we are publishing workbooks as soon as they are completed. The older books have become obsolete, and have been removed from the page, but we have up-to-date guides and a growing collection of video guides on the Microsoft Office Training self-help guides page.

The guides have been prepared using Office 365. Office 2019 and Office 2016 will be very similar, although some of the functions may not be available or be in different locations. If you need help with an older version of Office, please contact
