These extensions supplement the Microsoft Office toolbars and menus you work
with every day, making it easy to edit, view, and save the documents you create
with Microsoft Office and store them in a Workplace Services Express secure,
shared repository. This means that you can use these familiar tools to view and
edit documents in the document libraries and automatically save changes back
to the server.
Workplace Services Express also has built-in editors for rich text, spreadsheet,
