Microsoft Clip Organizer includes media files you can use in Microsoft applications, such as Word and PowerPoint. It gives you quick access to a collection of graphics installed in the clip art organiser. You can customise an Access 2007 form or report by adding graphics. Although the Microsoft Clip Organizer task pane is not visible in Access 2007, you can get to your clip art collection in other ways.
