Office 2003 & 2007

Discussion in 'General Software' started by TechnicalFreak, Feb 9, 2010.

  1. Unlucky me.. I have both of them. Working at school, where we use 2003.
    So.. I have them both installed, but somehow :confused: , when I use 2007 it disables 2003 and vice versa.

    Does anyone have a good solution, or better - a question to the answer "why?

    Why do you need to different types of Office. Stick with 2007, it will have full compatibility over 2003.

    Ya rly. 2007 is more bettar, plus it has some extra features, the only reason to use 2003 is if you only have that installed, in that case go ge the new 2010 beta and it works just like 2007.

    What they said.

    If you can't open your documents at school do one of two things:

    1.) Make sure to save them as Office 97-2003 documents when saving.
    2.) Complain to your school and get them to install the compatibility pack that allows Office 2003 to open 2007 documents.
