I resently tried 2010 on trail, I had 2007 all ready. Its at the end of the trail period. I dont see any reason I need it and want to go back to 2007, I can not seem to do this, and I have some work in 2010 and it will not allow me to work on the file ie cut and paste. I need that work any idea how can get back to 2007 and not loose my work thanks

Word 2010 and Word 2007 are both .docx so you should be able to open them ok.

I am presuming you have either the CD or a saved download of Office 2007, and you have the product key.

Try running Belarc Advisor (Free) it will tell you of any product/licence keys on your pc. Also if you downloaded from microsoft you will have an account and will be able to re-download office 2007.

Will have a look for more info on how to 'roll back to office 2007' and if it is possible. Going out now, will be back after tea.

Hopefully someone else who knows will post.
