Microsoft Office 2003

Importing Clip Art from the Office 2003 Server

Office 2003 Clip Art is already installed on computers that have the Office 2003 software. However, additional Clip Art may be obtained from the Office 2003 server. This document explains how to import Clip Art from the server. Importing Clip Art from one of the Office programs (Word, PowerPoint, Publisher, Excel, or FrontPage) will result in the Clip Art being updated for the other programs. You can also import Clip Art from the Web into the Clip Gallery. For information on how to do this, see Importing Clip Art From the Web.

The following instructions will work for faculty and staff working on their office desktop computers.
