Short for Small Business Edition, SBE was used to describe a version of Microsoft Office suite that was shipped with OEM computers. Microsoft SBE can include programs like MS Word 97, MS Excel 97, MS Outlook 98, and Streets 98. However, Microsoft SBE does not included Microsoft Access.

Note: Today, Microsoft no longer has an SBE model, but computers may still ship with Office software programs.
