I currently have microsoft office professional 2007 trial version which has expired. If I don't want to order it and just go back to my 2003 version can I just cancel the 2007 version? Will it just convert...


If you still have the installation CD for Microsoft Office 2003 and the key that goes with it, you can un-install the Trial version of Office 2007 and install Office 2003. Files saved Office 2007 format are not redable with Office 2003.

To preserve your files (the ones made with Office 2007) you must go through the following procedure:
  1. Open each file with the application that created it (Word, Excel, Powepoint, or what have you)
  2. If it its a Word 2007 file save it in Word2003 format
  3. If it is an Excel 2007 file save it in the Excel 2003 format.
  4. Etc.
This is only necessary if you intend to modify them at some later time.
If you only want to read (not modify) them you can still do that because Microsoft offers a free Word viewers.

Other free software you can use to open files created with Office 2007 is OpenOffice.org 3. You might lose some formatting but the files will be accessible to you.

Lose excel formatting when save as it in 97-2003 format


If you are using Excel 2007 and saving your workbooks in the 97-2003 format, you should get a message that appears that will let you know what formatting will not be compatable. If you click ok, then the computer will automatically adjust the formatting to the closest fit for the earlier version to be compatible. Once you save it to an earlier version, then reopen it in excel 2007, you will not get your formatting back.

Microsoft works 7.0


From the Microsoft Office 2003 Web site:

Excel 2000 or later versions cannot directly open files created in Microsoft Works version 3.0 or later. To open a Works file in Excel, first open it in Works and use the Save As command to convert it to one of the file formats listed below. Then close the Works file and open the converted version in Excel.
  • Works for Windows 2.0/Works for DOS SS
  • Excel SS
  • Lotus 1-2-3
To open a Microsoft Works database file in Excel, first save the file in Microsoft Works as a dBASE file, and then open the dBASE file in Excel.
