Should have no problem and Office XP will read office 2000 docs

However just to be on the safe side put all your docs in a folder and back them up before you uninstall 2000.

As above. It is always a good idea to back-up your files anyway, but yes it will be fine to remove the program without it removing any files/documents that have been created in Office 2000. Office XP will open and read your files without a problem. j.
