    Folks,

    We're in the planning stages of rolling out Outlook 2007 to our company, while maintaining all other applications of the suite Office 2003. I'm looking for some guidance from people and organizations that might have similar experience.

    When first installed, Outlook 2007 recognizes the proofing tools currently installed and, in our testing, functions well with them. This runs counter to Microsoft's assertions that Office 2007 requires the 2007 proofing tools. I've discovered that there is even a method for installing Office 2003 proofing tools so that they work in Office 2007 (see here) .

    What has been the experience of companies or firms in similar situations. What issues will we run into if we stay with the Office 2003 proofing tools? Can we even use the Office 2007 versions?

    Many thanks,

    Rex

    If you are going to use ONLY Outlook 2007, then why would want to use the 2007 tools for all of the other programs of 2003?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    That's a bit of the question. Early testing would seem to indicate that Outlook 2007 works well with the 2003 proofing tools, but that is counter to Microsoft's official line.
