I am getting in a pickle with my new Windows 8 laptop. I have MS Office Home and Student 2007 disk and product key. I was unwilling to pay MS for a 2013 version of Office when 2007 was good enough for what I need. For months I could not load 2007 because I could not get MS to accept the product key.
So,I down loaded Open Office as a free alternative.
However I have now found a way to get MS to accept the 2007 product key and Home and Student is now loaded on my laptop.
I seem to be getting a conflict between MS Office and Open Office I.E. I can create a document in MS Office and save it, when I try to reopen the document comes up in Open Office.
I had intended to leave both programs on the laptop, but should I assume MS Office and Open Office don't mix well and one should be deleted?
I am Dave in Newport South Wales, apologies if the solution seems obvious but I have been struggling with this for weeks. I have documents and pictures on both programs that I do not want to loose and I now have a fear of screwing something up. Thanks for Reading.
