    Office 2007 & Office 2003 (SP1)

    Hi everyone, wondering if there is any reason that I can't have both Office 2007 and Office 2003 loaded on my laptop?

    I have a brand new laptop, running Win Vista and Office 2007, but am still trying to get used to Office 2007 - there are a number of tasks that I am working on at present, and I know I could do things a lot quicker using Word 2003. Sad, isn't it?

    i'd be happy to just put Word on the new laptop, but thought I'd ask for some advice first.

    Cheers

    To avoid problems with Office the correct installation sequence is always install the older/oldest version first then the next oldest, etc. So, you'd need to uninstall Office 2007, install Offfice 2003 (apply all the patches), last re-install Office 2007 (apply all the patches).

    NOTE: You can have only one version of Outlook installed. So, you'd end up with Outlook 2007.

    Thanks Joe and John. I'll think carefully before I do this I think.
