    Thank you so much for offereing the 2007 practice files. I had bought the book with disk, but since my husband passed away, I can't find it now. I will buy the 2010 step by step once I get through with the 2007. Again, I just wanted to thank you, these books and companion practice files are very helpful to quickly get going.

    Hi Devon,

    Where are the instructions for the practice files?  Are they supposed to be also included in the zip file?  Thank you

  6. Hi, Andrew. These files are intended to be used with the books listed. In other words, each book guides you through the steps via which you use the files for practice.

      You need to select the link above for the title you bought. When you click through, go to the Downloads tab. You will find the files there to download, extract, and use.

    I wonder if you still have the microsoftpress excel 2007 Step by Step practice files available. I have the CD but for some reason will not download the

  22. Hi,
    I hope this finds you well.
    I recently purchased Microsoft Office 2010 Pro, and spent hundreds of dollars on Microsoft Press Office books, only to find I can’t access any of the practice files for the books. Can you, please, help me find those?
    Tonight I was trying to get the Access 2010 Practice files, though, there are the practice files for the other books, which I need, too. I am using the Step by Step books, both the large Office 2010 Pro book, and the individual program books, too, for more in depth coverage and understanding. This NEW, as they ALL ARE, Microsoft Office, Access 2010, Step by Step book is useless without the practice files since I’ve never used Access previously…I am lost without those practice files…
    Thank you so much, in advance, for any assistance which you may provide.

      Hi Joaquin,
      You can find the practice files on the Microsoft Press Store. You’ll need to find the product page for each book and download the files under the Downloads tab. For example, here is the where you will find the Access 2010 Step by Step practice files:

      You will be able to find all of the practice files on the product pages for each book.
