    I just bought a new server with Windows Small Business Server 2008 ,SP2
    Standard Edition 100 Series. I will be connecting 7 client computers to the
    server and would like everyone to be running Office software. I want to be
    able to have Excel, PowerPoint, Word, and Outlook on all computers and be
    able to get into Outlook with mobile devices. Most importantly I want
    everyone to be able to view each others Outlook Calendar and make changes.

    What version of Office do I need to buy to accomplish this (Some type of
    Office Server version or just Small Business Office installed on all client
    computers)?

    Thanks for your help.

    Obviously a volume licensed version which is currently available as
    Standard, Small Business, Professional Plus or Enterprise.

    Now which versions have the programs you need: All of the above will have
    all the programs needed.

    The networking of Outlook is a little above what I normally do but IIRC it
    will be a feature of the combination of the Office suite and the network you
    have. You can read more about Office Outlook here:

  3. Small Business Server includes Exchange which will allow you to accomplish
    all that you want with Outlook.

    So, all I need to buy is office software for the client computers?
