I've already looked through the archives but I'm just getting myself even more confused so thought I'd ask.
I have a file that was created in MS Office XP Pro and saved as a Doc. file.
Since the file was created I've had to do a complete reinstall on my desktop and can't find the product key for my MS Office disc's. As I have Open office 3 I thought I'd use this to make the additions I need to make. The only problem is that when I have then saved it as a .doc file and sent it to a friend with MS office, the formatinf is all off. I then tried to make the same additions/alterations in MS Works 9 and saved as a .doc file but the same problems arrise with the formatting.
Thanks for your response. I had another look and realised it's Office 2000 Pro and not XP Pro.
Any way I had a go at reinstalling it to see how far i'd get with out the Product key. It turns out I don't need one (probably why I can't find it). So I fully installed it and then went to the Office Update site and downloaded all the latest fixes and patches for it.
