  • 1. How do I install Office XP in a different computer(not pre-install
    My old machine died in which I bought and installed Office XP. I want to install my stand-alone copy of Office XP 2002 on my new machine. What is the process and will I have an activation issue?
  • 2. Offiice 2007 Uninstall verses Outlook Message received
    If Office 2007 BETA is uninstalled, will Office 2000 (previously used software) function as it used to? Will all documents created in 2007 BETA be available & capable of being opened , to include E-mails also received in Outlook?
  • 3. Sometimes I have thesaurus, sometimes I don't!
    Lately some of my documents don't have the thesaurus available when I try and use it. I get the menu, go to synonyms, but all I get is no suggestions. But I do get suggestions, and the thesaurus, in other documents. In fact, I've just discovered that sometimes my thesaurus in not available in different paragraphs of the SAME document! You get the thesaurus and suggestions for a particular word in one paragraph, but no thesaurus or suggestions for the SAME word in another paragraph. Can anyone explain this?
  • 4. Can the new Office 2007 beta version be run together with Office 2
    Received this reply from a top rated MS Engineer, which is quite scary: "I don't know what to tell you. You have to be very careful. Basically I would only install them if you are willing to reformat your hard drive and re-install if something goes wrong.ts working fine for me right now." If there is no going and something goes wrong--then what? Why bother trying? And any forecasts as to the costs involved--it won't be free, will it?

It appears that "eraser" will not work with XP operating system. Have 
you tried the  Add/remove Programs route?

I did try removing it with add/remove but it did not remove it all. I tried 
to remove the rest manually but some of it would not remove. There have been 
references to  mistakes in the registry while trying to run access before I 
tried to uninstall.

I am not familiar with the regestry and have not tried to correct anything in 
the registry. I guess I may have to learn how to fix the registry.

1.Excel (Office 97) printing issue (XP Operating System)

When I print a spreadsheet, boarders seem to float and 
near the bottom of the spreadsheet actually line through 
numbers in a row.

I am printing to an HP5si.  I sent the file to another user
(uses Office 2000) who printed to another printer and to 
the HP with no problems.

Please explain.  Thanks.

2.Transfer "Access 97" to new computer (XP Operating System)

I'm trying to move my old Office Pro Access 97 program and 
files from a Window 98 computer to a new computer with an 
XP Home Operating System.  

1) I tried to install just Access and PowerPoint from my 
Office 97 Pro CD-ROM.  PowerPoint works fine, but Access 
won't start (message says there is no license on this 

2) I tried copying over all Office 97 Professional 
programs and files from the old computer via ethernet 
connection to the new computer.  All programs work fine, 
except Access.

I looked in vain for help on Microsoft support web site.

If you can help me move Access to my new comupter before I 
get rid of it from my old one, I'd appreciate an email.  


3.Will Office 2000 work on new computer with XP operating system

I have an IBM Thinkpad X31 and having freshly installed XP Home I wanted to 
install Office 2000 Professional. This has failed with a pop-up asking me to 
insert the XP Professional SP2 CD which I don't have. Why would it ask for 
this? I have installed this previously on my desktop which has XP 
Professional with no problems. What is wrong?

4.Sharing Access 97 Database on NT and XP Operating Systems

I am trying to share an Access 97 database amongst Windows 
NT and XP users.  To make matters worse, NT machines are 
running Office 97 Professional and XP machines are running 
Office XP.  Within the application the need exists to use 
Excel to import .csv files in addition for browsing 
files.  When application is opened in XP (and a minor 
change to a form made) the next time an NT users opens 
app, an error occurs missing Excel 10 library.  User can 
remove error by removing check from missing reference 
library Excel 10 (Excel.exe), and clicking Excel 8 
(Excel8.olb).  This process is too cumbersome for the 
average user.  Is there any way to make this sharing issue 
go away?  It will be several more months before my entire 
Company moves to XP.

5.New Computer Office 97 on Old computer upgrade to Office XP

I have a beat up old (5 years) laptop with Office 97 on 

I've now purchased a new computer.

I want to install Office XP on the new computer but want 
to use the upgrade version rather than pay the full 
purchase price like I did for the Office 97 residing on 
the old laptop.

How do I get the upgrade version to recognize that I do 
in fact own the old Office 97 version.  It's just on a 
different computer that will no longer be used.
