Learn English – “In office” or “at office”?

“At” or “in” the office?

I am a little confused about which preposition should be used here as in the title. I prefer to use in office. But how about the other one? Are both correct or not?

I'd use them more or less like this:

  • "in office" = "having taken up their official position" (e.g. as an MP, president...)
  • "in the office" = "present in the office"
  • "at the office" = "in the office for the purpose of carrying out his duties"
