Q&A

Q.

Why can’t I find function X in my copy of WSS 3.0?

A.

Often, documents about SharePoint functions make no mention of the SharePoint product in which the function is included.

Unfortunately, because the two MOSS 2007 products are in effect WSS 3.0 plus bundled software, many functions are available in only one version of MOSS 2007 (the Enterprise Edition). They are not included in WSS 3.0. (In many cases, they are not included in the Standard version of MOSS 2007, either.)

Q.

Why is X, which was in the 2.0 version, no longer in the 3.0 version?

A.

Microsoft had a good reason to drop some of the functionality found in WSS 2.0. Mostly, it is a good technical reason, but sometimes it’s also political.
