Quick Take: Microsoft Office Standard Edition 2003 includes Word 2003, Excel 2003, Outlook 2003, and PowerPoint 2003. This edition allows you to read any file protected by Microsoft Information Rights Management (IRM) and, if permission is given, to modify the file. Standard Edition 2003 does not, however, let you create or change such permissions. For more details, see our complete Microsoft Office System review.
