    lost license number re laptop (Access 2000)

    I have Office 2000 SBE and Access, purchased separately, on my PC. I've just gotten a laptop, and want to load the programs. I've done Office -- but with Access, I can't find the license number. It must exist on the PC (it is registered); how can I locate it?
    Thanks, Christian Sweningsen

    The Product ID Number is displayed on the Help/About screen.

    I agree about the Product ID number, but that is different from the Lisence key.

    My guess is that the lisence key is converted to the Product ID once it's entered. I could be wrong, but I doubt the Lisence key is stored anywhere on the computer (registry or otherwise).

    correct - the cd key is converted to the PID after installing.

    i don't know about office, but some versions of windows have both keys (pid and cd) in the registry.
