No, no need to upgrade for upgrades sake. Most people only touches fragments of the power found in the packages anyway.
Personally I use Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Visio (sold separately) mostly.
Back in 200x I also used Publisher, but today I find I can do it all using just Word. I also notice I no longer use Excel to create tables and other visual representations either as I do even that in Word.
A ting that strikes me is that it does not take much knowledge to impress people and simply grouping graphics together seemingly getting three links in one graphic is met with disbelief :bigsmile:
I created a document just to show you a little what you can do there with an explanation for some of the effects if you're interested. I do not know if it contains any incompatibilities with 2010, so I added a PDF which 'almost' manages to get everything right (apart from the 'overdo it' final part where parts of the outer frame get lost): ClubMyCE_Word.zip
