    Office 2000 over XP (2000/XP)

    We have Word XP installed on several computers running Windows XP. Can we install other Office 2000 products (Excel, Powerpoint, Access) on the same computer, or are we better off removing XP and installing the whole Office 2000. Note: we get many errors such as abnormal program termination, or can't run database engine when trying to edit mailmerge data. I begged the person in charge of purchasing to get 2000, but they wanted us to be "up-to-date". Should I insist again?

    I would suggest that ALL other machines be upgraded to Office XP, and I would NOT run both versions unles you can do a "duel boot" and then have two different systems including the OS and Office <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

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

    Although - it IS possible to run multiple versions of Office peacefully. I've done it for quite some time now with Access (97, 2000, and 2002 on ONE machine).

    I agree, however, it's not a good idea to install an older version on top of a newer version. You must install the older version first, then any subsequent newer versions.

    Hope this helps!
