An Alternative

  MMH 01:19 01 Feb 2005

Could anybody advise me please, whether a more stable platform exists other than Windows which would also be compatible with Microsoft Office and If such an alternative exists?

Thanks Acolyte you have given me a lot to work with. Just one final question. Do Linux based system work with Microsoft office or would I need start again?

If the answer is yes it is then a question of which Linux Application?

If the answer is no then i am back to the drawing board?

click here for an alternative Office suite, comes in various flavours from Arabic to Zulu, available for Windows several Linux distros, Mac etc.

Thankyou for that response but I actually wanted to know whether Microsoft Office was Compatible with Linux or even the Word or Excel files which I have plenty of.

have you actually got a problem with Office and has Office been installed from an Original CD and not a "copy " of an original?

  MMH 02:11 01 Feb 2005

I have the original package Office 2000. But I will be working on excel or word to find and error message pops up then I get kicked out the applications. I believe this is a different issue from the DLL problems I have with Windows ME. That is why asked if I use Microsoft Office on another platform other than Windows.

??do you need help with Excel? if so I can ask someone to have a look for you ?
