Filed in by Lizetta Staplefoote | December 16, 2010 3:20 pm

This relationship allows users to work with SharePoint data without leaving Office applications, as well as manipulate data in Office applications directly in SharePoint. Here’s a list of the most popular Office programs and how they interact with SharePoint.

Outlook

Word

Excel

PowerPoint
