Installing Office 2003 - Help!

  plumbit 13:29 09 May 2007

I have Office 2000, and now wish to install Office 2003. Do I need to uninstall office 2000, before installing the new edition? or will it do it automatically for me? If I uninstall 2000, will I be able to access all the work done on 0ffice 2000?

Thanks in advance for any help.

If I remember rightly Office 2000 was designed to work within a Network and is slightly different to the other versions that can be either Stand-alone or Networked.

2003 can be installed over the top of 2000 (almost like an update). All in this office have been done without difficulties.

Don`t think you`ll have a problem reading the old office documents (Word & Excel) however you may find that Access Databases need to be converted to 2003 and then cannot be read by Office 2000. Similarly Publisher Documents almost certainly won`t be compatible with 2003.

I installed Student Office 2003 over the top of Office 2000 and found to my surprise that the additional programmes of 2000 eg the Business templates etc, were left intact and working.

You will be given the option to either replace or install in addition to, Office 2000. Whichever you choose Outlook will be replaced with 2003.

In my experience ALL files created in ANY Office 2000 program can be read (and then sometimes modified) by Office 2003. It is NOT the case in reverse though.
