MS Office 97 - Can it install on Vista PC?

  Alan2 11:06 06 Jul 2007

I am looking into the purchase of a new PC running Vista Home Prem and intend to install MS Office XP which was an upgrade installed over Office 97.

Since I need to install Office 97 first I'll like to know if it's compatible with Vista otherwise I'll be looking for a pre-installed version of Office 2007.

Thanks for that. The list will be useful for other software I'll also be transferring.

I took part in the PCA trials of OpenOffice some years ago and found it to fall short of MS Office particularly in its spreadsheet element as I have many complex workbooks it couldn't handle.
