**Summary**

Equation Builder (aka Equation Editor) is included with Microsoft Office 2007 edition. One key advantage of the editor is that it allows the user to key-in mathematical formulas with the use of keystrokes. This means that a user can key-in complex mathematical formulas with minimal switching between keyboard and mouse. The technology is based on the Office Mathematics Markup Language (OMML) plus the math autocorrect option to provide a WYSIWYG interface.

We are providing the following web links to provide a handy tutorial/user's guide and key tables to take advantage of the keystroke options of Equation Builder.
