Microsoft Office 2007/2003

Question: Microsoft Office 2007/2003

Can anyone confirm if it is O.K to have Microsoft Office 2007 and Office 2003 running on the same computer. I ask because my wife is doing a computer course where she uses Office 2003 and is finding it difficult using the Office 2007 on our home computer. If this is possible I can install Office 2003 which will make life easier for her.

Preferred Solution: Microsoft Office 2007/2003

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Microsoft Office 2007/2003

that u can have both running. Installing one might over-write the other. If the reason is so she can use the 2003 menu, there is a dl available somewhere for using 2003 menus with 2007. Just try googling it.

I have a problem because I need to learn to use microsoft access for a test and the thing is I have Microsoft Office 2007 while the school has Offcie 2003. I really need to know if it is possible to switch from Microsoft Office 2007 back to Microsoft Office 2003 and how?

Answer:Microsoft Office 2007 -> 2003?

I don't know if it is possible to revert, but would the school be willing to allow you to download access 03 for home use as you are a student there? I know that at least some colleges allow this. If you haven't already asked them it won't hurt to do so.

edit: if they did allow this you would probably have to promise to uninstall the program when no longer a student.

Hello to all good people
 Can you help me with this issue? Want to install both Microsoft Office 2003 and 2007 on one mashine. Is it possible such an effort ?
Thanks in advance!

Answer:Microsoft Office 2003 and 2007 on the same computer

It should be okay, but you'll have to be very careful how you do the installation:
 
1.  Watch every step, do NOT accept the defaults all the time. 
 
2.  Install 2003 first, if you've not done it already. 
 
3. The first thing you're asked, is WHERE to install.  Create a new folder name, instead.  So at the end of the path it gives you, instead of accepting 'Microsoft Office', instead type something like 'MSO2003' or whatever you'll easily remember.  MS always installs multiple nested directories with the same names, so if you're gonna use two versions, you want to change the ending folder name of at least, one of them.  (I have, for example, MS Office 2002 and 2003 on the same machine, so I renamed one of the directories MSO02, for that reason.)
 
4.  After installation, shut down, go walk for a few minutes and then turn the machine on again (soft reboot doesn't work well with Office).
 
5.  Do something else on your machine for awhile, don't just do the next thing as the 2007 installation.  Give Windows time to 'populate' all its references with recognition of the new installation.
 
6.  So maybe after an hour or so, you can now install 2007.  It will notice that you have 2003 installed, and offer to replace it.  Say no to that.
 
7.  It too will present you with a default directory which is the same as the default you saw in #3, and again you want to specify a uni... Read more

Is it possible to install the 3 different version of Microsoft Office within the same PC? If so, in which sequence? ascending or decending order?

My wife downloaded and installed a 25 use version of Office 2007 today. She had been using the 2003 version which came preinstalled on her computer. Once the 2007 version installed; all her documents in Publisher 2003 became part of the Publisher 2007. She now wants to revert to the 2003 version. She believes that the 2003 version is on the discs that came with her computer. However the concern is that if she uninstalls the 2007 she will lose all her documents. If she were to do a restore to yesterday would the program revert to 2003 with all the documents intact as they were before the today install of 2007?truenorth

Answer:Reverting back to Microsoft Office 2003 from 2007

Is it possible to do a backup of the documents before doing the system restore? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/What-is-System-RestoreQuoteSystem Restore uses a feature called System Protection to regularly create and save restore points on your computer. These restore points contain information about registry settings and other system information that Windows uses. You can also create restore points manually.System Restore is not intended for backing up personal files, so it cannot help you recover a personal file that has been deleted or damaged. You should regularly back up your personal files and important data using a backup program.All the documents should remain, but I would really follow Microsoft's advice...

Hi all, my husband brought home a disk with a few programs on it for my daughter who is starting college and needs a word processing program. I believe it has OpenOffice and Office 2007 Enterprise, not familiar with either one. I have MSOffice 2003 installed on my desktop and am happy with it. So I thought I would download this new program on my computer to see what changes have been made etc. but what I didn't realize is that it over-wrote my 2003. I tried opening some photos with MS Pictures and its not there anymore. I also tried opening an excel file and got a message "MSOINTL.DLL is missing... " or something like that and the file wouldn't open. So in frustration I uninstalled MSOffice 2007 and now I see that all of my excel files and word files won't open since now my 2003 Office is gone.
Sorry for rambling here, I tried to do a system restore and picked a date in bold as instructed (just a day ago) and after it appeared to go thru the motions and reboot, I got a message that "unable to restore ..."

So I'm pleading now to find out first how to get my Office 2003, is there a place where I can download it? I don't want Office 2007, I want my old one back. My husband has a call in to the IT guy at work who he got the disk from, but as I said, I should have just kept my status quo...you know the old sayi... Read more

Hi,

I've got a new Windows Vista that I bought, and it seems I have both Microsoft Office Powerpoint Viewer 2003 and 2007. I don't know where they came from, but one was probably installed via "Microsoft Works" by my family, and the other one (this is just a guess) from microsoft update maybe? The thing is, in Start - Programs I have both. Is there any way to get rid of 2003? Add/Remove programs shows just 2007, and one seems to be in C:/ProgramData and the other in C:/Program Files. Any help?

Thanks in advance =P

I need Access 2007 for school, but I don't have it at home. I downloaded the compatibility pack from Microsoft's website, but Access 2007 files still won't open up in 2003.

Any help on this issue is much appreciated.
 

Answer:Need a Microsoft Office Access 2007 to 2003 converter. If one exists.

There is no compatability pack for Access, only for Word, Excel, Powerpoint etc.

You can however use the 2007 feature to "save as" a 2000, or a 2002/2003 compatable file at the school end, if that is possible..

Otherwise you mayu need to upgrade to 2007 at home.

Good Day,

I've often used the Files and Transfer Wizard to move files in the Windows XP environment, including those for people moving from Office 2003 to 2007, however, I've just been asked to move a person from a computer that would result in them moving backwards from Office 2007 to Office 2003; is this possible? What concerns should be considered? Obviously if they have a number of documents saved in the 2007 it could be problematic, though could the compatibility pack offered by Microsoft offset that concern? Thoughts? Thanks.

When I sent a message and when I was using Microsoft Office Outlook 2003, I had an option that enabled me to add a photo following or preceding my text. This option enabled me to put a photo in the text area and place text under or above the photo explaining the photo. I am now running Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 using Windows Home Premium 64 bit and I cannot find this option. If this is no longer an option, how can I place a photo in the text area and then follow with text explaining the photo? If this is not possible, I guess this new version is a downgrade!

Hey guys, my wife is taking a course that requires her to install Office 2010. The issue is that she wants to preserve her current setup which includes Office 2003 and 2007 existing side-by-side on her Windows 7 (64-bit Home Edition) notebook.
The 2003/2007 setup is not one that she really wants to mess with (i.e., she has no interest whatsoever in uninstalling the two Office suites that she currently has), so ideally she would like to have Office 2010 installed temporarily (for the duration of her course) on the machine without interfering with the current setup.
What is the most painless way of doing this that does not involve shelling out for a second computer?

Hi, welcome to the forum,
I had a similar situation here but in the end I opted out.

I removed both Office 2003 and 2007 and installed 2010, I then used virtual XP and installed 2003 there, 2007 and 2010 are too similar and the dll's will 'bite' along the way.

Even my 2003 and 2007 gave me issues after some time.

Does anyone know if I can easily upgrade my Office 2003 Student version to Office Basic or Standard upgrade versions2007?

Answer:Upgrade Office 2003 Student to Office Basic 2007

Yes, the 2007 Home and Student version of Office 2007 will do it. There's no upgrade for it, just the CD with Word, Excel, Power Point and One Note, stick it in and follow the install instructions. However, if you're going to be using Office 2007 and transferring files between versions i.e. Office 2007 at home and Office 2003 somewhere else, it's worth knowing that Office 2007 uses a new file format that isn't recognised by earlier versions of Office. For Word its .docx, for Excel its .xlsx, and Powerpoint .pptx.You can download software for earlier versions to read the new format, or alternatively, anything you may transfer can be saved in the old format. Thought I'd point it out as you mention a student version of Office 2003, and not all institutions will be using Office 2007 yet.

Hey All,

Here is my issue. The Company we consult for has not transitioned all of the way to Office 2007. We have a number of machines that still have Office 2003. Compatibility Pack works on almost all issues.

Current issue is one of our users received a PowerPoint 2003 that has embedded PowerPoint 2007 files. When the user opens the PowerPoint 2007 file Office 2003 shuts down. He has to download the 2007 file to his desktop.

From what I can see this is because the file conversion process shuts down Office 2003 before attempting to open the PowerPoint 2007 file.

Another issue that may be complicating the error is we had to run a Fixit patch from Microsoft that was causing Excel, Word and PowerPoint to be scanned which caused long opening times. I don't remember the KB article for that one at the moment but will find it if I need to.

Thanks for any help in advance.

I installed office 2007 ultimate alongside office 2003 professional. Microsoft outlook and publisher was removed from my office 2003 prior to office 2007 installation. I also opted not to install microsoft outlook 2007.

It seems that each time I load word 2007 or 2003 after previously opening the other version (ie. load 2003 followed by 2007 OR load 2007 followed by 2003), a window would opened up indicating that either the configuration or installation process is taking place, hence delaying the startup. However, once the program has started, it would run without problem. I do not intend to unistall my 2003. There was no problem loading excel 2003/2007, powerpoint 2003/2007 and access 2003/2007.

I recently purchased Microsoft Office 2007 and upgraded from my 2003 installation (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) today. I can't believe how frustrated I am, I am regretting the entire purchase and upgrade. The composition of the toolbars is lacking options/icons present in 2003, the word configuration options are all over the place, and I cannot for the life of me find out where some of the most basic options are, such as fields. I didn't know the Visual Basic toolbox is gone until I read a help file on some website online, stating that Microsoft now wants you to purchase VB.NET separately.

I have used Microsoft Office since version 6.22 with Windows 3.1, I can deal with tabs instead of menus, and the new theme...but it is a serious serious pain when I can't find the location of options which I have been using for the past ten years. There is an old addage... If it ain't broke, DON'T FIX IT!

Originally, I had Office 2003 installed in my computer, & a trial version of 2007 that had already expired.
Today I installed a full version of Microsoft Office 2007, without removing any of the other two versions from my computer. I realized that it seemed to automatically remove the older version. I`m not bother about it not being there, as I got the new version, but I wonder if this is an automatic uninstalling that Office does, or if the version is still there but I can`t see it, as I would like to remove it properly if it`s still somewhere in my computer.
I checked in Control Panel & the only thing I can see is "Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007", the full version I just installed, & everything that come with it. No 2003 anywhere.
Does this mean 2003 is fully uninstalled?
Thanks a lot!!

Answer:My office 2003 disappeared after installing office 2007

You can check to see if it is fully uninstalled (I am sure that it is) by going to search and typing the name there. If it is still present, the program will appear.

Worst case scenario, just remanants will remain. Download and use ccleaner. If you run this software, you can be certain that 2003 has gone to software heaven.

If given the option not to use the reg cleaner inculuded in ccleaner take it. I and many others at the forum feel that reg cleaners do more harm than good.

Hi all.
Is it possible to run MS Office 2003 and MS office 2007 on the same machine.
I teach I.T. and many of my students, as well as the school computer labs have office 2003. For this reason I need 2003 on my machine.
That said I also am seen as the computer guru by fellow collegues, so often find myself sorting out their computer problems or giving advice on how to merge tables in word or create mark shedules in excel. Many of them have 2007, which is very different. Thus running 2007 seems like a good idea.
So is it possible to have both versions running on the same machine?
At this point I am using windows XP - tablet edition.

I've an almost new machine that I've installed Office 2007 Home & Student. On my previous machine I had Office 2000 premium installed. Since Home & Student is just Excel and Word I was wondering if I can install Access and Outlook from my old Office 2000 CDs to compliment my Home&Student? I rarely use access and would use outlook only for the calendar so this is low priority for me and I don't want to chance screwing up my Office 2007 for something I'd only use a few times a year unless I've some assurances that it would work. Does anyone have experience doing this or something similar?

I'm on Windows XP w/SP2. It had Office 2003. I've had my computer since 2004.
Before I installed Office 2007, Office '03 worked fine. Then I needed '07 for a college class and installed a trial. Office '07 worked fine, but the MS Word shortcut in my quicklaunch bar pointed to Word '03 still. Whenever I'd hit it by accident, it would try to install Office '03("Please wait while Windows Configures Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003). I canceled it on the second screen and it worked anyway.

The second screen had this:
Installation Error: File not Found

A required installation file SKU1E3.CAB could not be found.

Before, I'd hit cancel and MS Word '03 would get to working anyway. Then I'd close it and go into Word 07. I think there was some error message, but I don't remember it. Now, I just uninstalled an Office '07 trial. The same thing is happening again, but now when I hit cancel, it says "fatal error during installation." It's a different error message from the one I got last time.

I have 2 different Windows 7 systems that have this problem. When I install Office 2007 using the "Upgrade" option it does not remove Office 2003 and leaves the system in a confused state, especially in regards to Outlook. When I initially start Outlook it will say it is configuring Outlook 2007, but subsequent screens indicate an Outlook 2003 utility is being used.

With great pain I can manually set the default email client and do other pieces of the configuration and get Outlook 2007 running, but as soon as I reboot the system, it reverts to a confused state. I have tried all four methods Microsoft prescribes in KB2639197 to remove Office 2003. I have also used 3rd party uninstallers?specifically Revo and CCleaner. It still comes back after a reboot. I have removed BOTH Office 2007 and Office 2003 and I can reboot any number of times and it stays uninstalled, but as soon as I insert the Office 2007 install disc it ONLY gives me the upgrade option and returns to this state where both 2003 and 2007 products appear installed in a confused state.

I have Office 2007 setup to run in Compatability Mode and always save the files in the .xls format. The only way I can open a file in Office 2007 is to go through the program and not just by double clicking the file. I have tried to change the Open With in the properties of the files but it changes back to Office 2003 after I set it to Office 2007. Any Ideas on how to make it always use Office 2007 as my default.

Right click on the .xls file you want, and choose Open With.

Check that box, and it should always open w/Excel 2007.

Answer:Upgrade Office 2003 to Office 2007

What edition of Office 2007 are you looking at buying and more importantly WHAT do you expect out of your Office 2007 experience. Yes the interface is different, there are new file formats and wizards - but if you are happy with Office 2003 then you may not find 2007 much different.That said - I used both and I prefer 2007. As a student, the obvious choice for me was Home & Student 2007 - I only upgraded to make use of the new reviewing tools in Word, such as the tri-pane review feature - which has greatly helped in writing my thesis. That said, the Home version can be installed on 3 PC's, but doesn't include Outlook - so your contact an e-mail question is moot if you want this version. (You get a useless copy of Onenote instead, why not Access?!) So you will need Office Standard and up for Outlook...If you purchase a non-upgrade edition then you can install Office 2007 alongside 2003 - the only problem here is that Outlook must either be 2003 OR 2007, can't be both. I found that my installation of Office was installed in the same place as my previous Office XP installation and the programmes were removed automatically (except for the ones that aren't included in my 2007 version.)Can't comment specifically with Outlook as I have a uni account with e-mail facilities so I don't use the software...You ask about pitfalls - well be aware that Office 2007 saves all files in a new XML format, whilst you can read older formats from previous versions, the older versions CANNOT by defa...

I have a new thinkpad laptop that came installed with Office Professional 2007 trial. I have an existing license for Office 2003 Small Business which I was running on my prior laptop.

While I like the enhancements made to 2007 (vs 2003), I definitely don't need all the modules that come with Professional (publisher, business contact manager). From what I've read, if I don't convert the trial to the same version, I will have to uninstall and re-install the version that I choose.

So, it seems that I have the following options:

1) Upgrade my existing 2003 license to 2007 Small Business (I'm not sure whether or not I will need to install 2003 before I install 2007 for the "upgrade" licensing to work)

2) Install 2003 Small Business and wait until Office 2010 comes out and upgrade at that point.

3) Buy Office Home and Student 2007 and Outlook 2007 as separate modules and install (from what I can tell this is is about $60 less than the Small Business upgrade and has the modules that I use regularly).

I would love to hear input/comments/suggestions on what my best course of action is. I don't want to be penny-wise and pound foolish and I want to keep my new laptop efficient and running smoothly.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Answer:Office 2007 vs Office 2003 for new Win 7 64-bit laptop

I would wait until Office 2010 comes out because it will have added features and most likely will work better than 2007. You don't want to buy 2007 now and then want to buy 2010 later.

That's just what I would do personally, but do whatever you feel is best for you.

Ok, well up until yesterday my father was using Office 2000 with Microsoft binder for work. He just got a new laptop for work and he's got Office 2007 installed. From the looks of Microsoft's site it states that 'Microsoft Unbind is not included with Office 2007.' Looks like what I really need is Microsoft Binder from Office 2000. Is there a place I can download it (legally) or purchase it? He literally has thousands of binder files (*.obd) that he needs to be able to access. I've tried searching with nothing turning up.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
 

Answer:Microsoft Office Binder (*.obd files) with Office 2007?

So further searching turned up that Unbind for Office XP/2003 is just a waste of time for Office 2007 and no point in looking further into that.

So then I found this:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=822622

Which seems to me if I can track down a Office 2000 disc I should be able to install JUST Binder 2000. Results show that it works along side Office XP/2003 so I don't see why it wouldn't with Office 2007. It would only be used to unbind old files, not create new ones.

If anyone has any other thoughts that would be great.
I'll look into what I wrote above tomorrow and post back with the results if need be.

Was talking to a guy today at programmersparadise.ca and he confuses me... maybe someone here can help me understand what he meant.

He tells me that Office 2007 licenses are out now, but the media is not available for another month.

Sooooo he tells me he will send me the 2003 media kit, and when the 2007 version becomes available I will be able to update to 2007 automatically via an update tool(Windows update??).... he seemed VERY unsure of himself, and wanted to verify is this is correct or not. OR will I have to purchase ANOTHER media kit in another month, when the 2007 becomes available?? He says no, just upgrade it online.

Thanks a ton for your guys help.
 

Answer:Office 2003 to 2007

Office 2007 is out for businesses with volume license agreements, MSDN, and TechNet subscribers. Plus you can probably pick up free copies at various launch events around the country if you're an MS partner.

I haven't heard a single thing about updating Office 2003 to 2007 online, so i'm gonna guess that's a load of crap.

Question: office 2003&2007

We have both office 2007 and 2003 installed on our computers. If a user tries to click on a file it opens in 2007. A few users want it to default to office 2003 not 2007. Is this possible?

I tried changing it in folder options and pointing it to 2003 but it didn't have any effect.

Thanks for any help!
 

Answer:office 2003&2007

Are they using the same PC? Or is this on different pc's? \If each user have different pc's you can just uninstall one or the other to accommodate the user. If not, if they dont have different profiles, then it will take some tricks, or theres not haps in doin so.

Howdy,

maybe someone knows about this stuff. My employers would like to see a comparison between Office 2003 and office 2007 (beyond office 2007 is shinier)... does anyone know of any website which does a side-by-side comparison of the two, features, enchancements, whatnot? I don't want the official MS one, as it's all MS hype
 

Answer:Office 2003 vs 2007

Office 2007 is Beta and unfinished so any comparison is worthless at present, if their are any reviews on the two side-by-side.

Hello friends, my WinXP Home pc has Office 2003, not 2007. I need to have 2007 to be able to open 2007 documents. Is there an upgrade path from Office 2003 to 2007, or I will need to get 2007, uninstall 2003 and do a complete install of 2007? Please advise. Thanks.

I think that ms office 2003 is better than to use 2007. It is very simple for easy to use. Company also provided an new version of 2007. There are something difference to 2003 and 2007. In 2003 you can find different time tool so go on sub menu. and the 2007 more type of is outside mean all standard tools you can easily find.

Hi All,

I want both versions of MS Office run independently on my XP Pro. However, I tried to install one, it would replace the previous one. Since certain people still don't have Office 2007, that's why I need Office 2003 runs. Can this be arranged and is it bad idea to have both running on the same windows. I know that files compatibility may be a problem. Thanks for you input.

Answer:MS Office 2003 & 2007

Hello,

File compatibility isn't a problem because Microsoft Office 2007 can open files from previous versions of Office, and can also save files in the 'old' format so that they are compatible with older versions of Microsoft Office.

For example, when using Microsoft Word 2007, instead of saving the document as a .docx document (which is the new, Word 2007 format), you can save the document in the old document format instead, which is .doc.

When saving a file in any Microsoft Office 2007 application, make sure you choose to save using the format compatible with 97-2003 Office versions:

Ok, so I got a Trojan virus and had to use Dell Datasafe to delete everthing on my computer and reinstall windows. Now, when I open any of the Microsoft Office programs it asks for a key, which i don't have. I never got an office CD with my computer, so where do i find my key? If it helps, here's my computer info:

OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium , 64 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P7450 @ 2.13GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10
Processor Count: 2

Answer:Problem With Microsoft Office 2007 Office

How did you reinstall Office if you didn't have the CD for it?
The key should have been included with the documentation when you bought your PC. Unfortunately if it's not included in the documentation there is little likelyhood that you will be able to recover it now you have wiped everything. Have you contacted Dell for support?

:wave If I have, and LOVE Open Office :drool, but run in to the occasional file that I can't open with it, not the new .xdoc or anything, but for instance, a friend of mine sent me a .doc that I couldn't open with OOrg, can they coexist on a machine? Can I still use OOrg for everything, and MSO for things that get emailed to me?

I am guessing I can, and this new CD is licensed for 3 machines, so I might use it on mine, if it's not going to mess up OOrg..

Thanks guys!

Both windows XP Machines.. my signature refers to a machine I have at home. lol
 

Answer:Open Office & Microsoft Office (2007)

Yes, you can run OOorg and MS Office on the same PC. You may run into occasional problems when the PC can't decide which program to use to open a certain document, but this is easily solved by right clicking on the document, and selecting Open With and then selecting the program you want to open it with.

I have MS office 2003 installed in my desktop with windows xp. Most of the documents which I receive of late is in 'docx' format of 2007.

Can I install MS office 2007 in another location keeping MS office 2003 in its present location?

hello,
I have Office 2007 Basic and Office 2003 Basic. I was just wondering, what is the difference between the two versions?

-- Jesse

Answer:Office 2007 Vs Office 2003

In MS Office 2007, Microsoft introduced the new Ribbon system which can get confusing, but is a real help at times. There are many cool features on Office 2007 that are nice, but not necessarily needed. Office 2007 saves its files in a different format (.docx), but still supports the standard .doc format. All in all I find MS Office 2007 very useful and more powerful than Office 2003, but 2003 is excellent, and gets the job done nicely. Most changes are GUI based in Office 2007.

SO heres what happened. I had office 2007 installed but i needed to uninstall it and install office 2003 because I am going to school from home and have to have 2003.

I uninstalled 2007 then installed 2003 and nothing would work right, all of the files that should have been word documents would not work with 2003 and anytime I tried to just open word by itself (without opening from a file) it would say it was installing the program (this happened every time i tried to open it)

I uninstalled 2003 and reinstalled 2007 hoping it would be ok because there was a file i really needed well now 2007 is doing the same thing even though the files I made were with 2007 and it is also doing the thing where every time I opened word it would try to install/configure itself.

How can i completely uninstall 2007 and any legftover traces. I'm hoping that once I do that and reinstall that all will be fixed.
 

Answer:Problems with office 2003 and 2007

Not sure why you are having problems re-installing Office 2007.

As for why you couldn't open Office 2007 documents with Office 2003 applications, Microsoft changed the file formats for 2007. In 2007, you should have the option to "Save as" using an older file format or you can get a Compatibility Pack for Office 2003 that will let you open Office 2007 files. More information at ...
