Need to install MS Office-upgrade or full version?

  Ant101 17:06 12 Oct 2007

Hi All-I recently bought a new pc and it came with microsoft works version 8 preinstalled. I have been told that I can also install microsoft office, which I now need! I'm unsure though whether I need to buy the full retail version, which proves pretty costly for me, or whether I can buy an upgrade-I suppose in effect to convert the works to office-is that possible? Apologies for being so dense but would rather ask than make a huge mistake!

The upgrade is possible, my laptop came with works and I ordered office 2003 and when it came it was an upgrade that worked perfectly just remember to keep both disc's and product keys incase you need to reinstall for any reason.
