  • 2. re-installation office 2003
    I removed my version of office standard 2003 from my computer to save some space and to allow me to run the defragmenter. However during my attempt to reinstall the product the entered product key seems to indicate that the software is now only an update and requires a previously installed office version. I am positive that I bought a full version of that software package and not just an update. Any suggestions?
  • 3. How do I locate my product key number
    I did not receive a confirmation e-mail with my product key number when I downloaded the 60-day free trial of Microsoft Office 2007. How do I locate it?
  • 4. New activation problem with old activated installation
    I have been running Office 2003 S&T Edition for some time. It was activation properly when first installed. Recently I had problems with some update and at teh same time, I begain getting a dialogue box daily that says "This copy of Microsoft Office has not been activated". Given that I was having a few small problems, I did a full removal and re-install. That fixed the update issue but it still is saying it has not been activated. When I click help - activate product, I get a box saying this product is already activated. How can I get rid of this nuisance?

2.Office 2003/XP doc opening in Office 2000

Hi, I have read the other posts, and tried the compatibility options
and Save options, but both didn't work. So, please bear with me. I
created document in office 2000/XP. No tables in this document. Took
the document to Office 2003/XP. Created some tables. Now, I take the
document back to Office 2000, and all the BOLD text in the tables
became not BOLD, and all the not BOLD text in the tables became BOLD.

If this is related to compatibility option or save option, kindly tell
me exactly which box to check or uncheck in which tab.


3.Word DOC in email opens installer (Office 2007)

I have installed some update patches on the windows update site. Now 
everytime I view an email with a word attachment, Windows Installer opens and 
looks like it is going to install something. The it sits there for about 30 
seconds before it will show me the email. Anyone else seeing this?

4.All Office 2000 and 2007 Excel and Word files open very slowly

If I open a Excel or Word file from a folder it takes a good 15 seconds for 
the file to open. If I start Word or Excel first and then do a file, open, 
the file will open instantly. I dowloaded the trial version of Office 2007 
after this started with my Office 2000 and 2007 does it as well. I have 
removed and reinstalled Office 2000 and re-downloaded all SP's and updates.

5.Converting Office/Word 2007 document for Office/Word 2000 user


My wife is running Vista with the latest Office which I believe has Word 
2007 (?)
I am running XP with Office/Word 2000.  

When she emails me a Word document, I can't open it since it's saved as a 
Word 2007 file and my version doesn't recognize it.

What do we need to do on the Vista/Office/Word 2007 side so I can open 
future Word files from her comuter?

I'm sure it's an easy fix.

Many thanks.
