Office 2007 will open older files from older office.

It will usually also ask if you wish to convert it to 2007 format.

As yet I don't recommend that.

2007 saves dome of its documents in a format that is not easily read but older office. If you send other people documents on a regular basis then they may not be able to use it unless they download the compatibility pack from Microsoft.

When you save you should for the time being save it as an older office type document using the SAVE AS option.

I actually went back to an older version of office as the new interface did nothing to help users who were used to older version.

If you mean that will you be able to open files created with Word 2003 with Word 2007 then you do not need to worry about compatibility.
Just uninstall the Office 2003 and install the Office 2007. You will be able to open old files without any problem.

There is no need to transfer your any data. Just install office 2007 and your office 2003 files will work with it.

The Main Four Differences Between Microsoft Office 2007 and Microsoft Office...


The Main Four Differences Between Microsoft Office 2007 and Microsoft Office 2003
There are few differences between Microsoft Office 2007 and Microsoft Office 2003. As we know, some new features have been added to MS-Office 2007. The appearance has also been improved. This tips is only created for those who are not familiar with Office 2007 so that they can learn it easily.
The main four differences are;
Menu bar :
See the picture below:
d5c6c35.jpg
Ribbon :
The ribbon with a Logo in MS-Office 2007, the normal drop down menus in MS-Office 2003 has been replaced. Most people who have been using Office 2003 got confused with this since we cannot see the File Menu button where we can directly select New, Open, Save, etc. But those are still there with the ribbon. This interfaces makes us easier while using the office suite. When we click the Ribbon (Office logo) on the extreme top left corner we will see the following bottons :
8c290cf.jpg
XML file Format :
When we talk about Office 2003, it means .doc file extension. Now a new file format has been added called .docx. If we save any file or data in this format, we can’t read or open it using previous versions of Microsoft office. But don’t worry, there are still the old file formats as well. And we can open the previous versions file format in Microsoft Office 2007. So if you are transferring a MS office file to another user or sending it through email, it’s best to sent it as .doc so that anyone who is using any version of Microsoft Office can open and read it.

If you ever come across more differences, please leave a comment so that we can help each other better. Good luck to you all.

Unable to install ms office 2007, upgrading from Office 2003


Hi,
please first uninstall all the existing versions of MS Office. Then try to clean temporary files, cache and registry using tools like cCleaner (freely availavle), then install MS Office.

if you want to install only MS Office 2007, no need to install MS office 2003 and upgrade. directly install MS Office 2007.

If you want to keep both, pleas install MS office 2003 first, then MS office 2007, please dont uograde it, rather select Keep both version.

Please make sure that you have admin permission before doing all this and your system is free from any virus.
Thanks

Office 2003 Install failure on new computer.


I am not really sure, but I think that 2003 and 2007 use the same file names and some files may have gotton overwritten when you installed, so the app gets this file that is too advanced for the version or not advanced enough. Hope that helps.


My advice, uninstall both programs and ONLY INSTALL 1 version (2003 OR 2007)

:-) Good Luck

Windows Vista and Office Pro 2003


hi, yes you can install office 2003 while you already have office 2007. you just need to change the installation directory when you launch the setup for office 2003. change it into something apart from what office 2007 already is installed in. so what you're trying to say is that you should be entitled to an upgrade to office 2007 if office 2003 doesn't work? i would maybe think so... but no solid answer for that one.
