Upgrading Microsoft Office

  IvanSmall 13:02 30 Sep 2007

I have an old computer with microsoft office 2000 on it, I was thinking about upgrading to office 2003. After doing some research I found that there was a full version of 2003 and an upgrade version. I was wondering whether the full version would be required or would the upgrade version work seeing as I already have the 2000 edition.

Thanks- Ivan Small.

To answer your question, yes the upgrade will work if you have Office 2000 installed.

But why upgrade from Office2000 - I still use it and it does fine for everything I want. In fact PhotoDraw, which came along with it is no longer available, but I think it's great for many things and still use it lots.

Why waste your money on an expensive upgrade you probably don't need?

"why pay when you get open office its identical to MS Office"

I'm sure the developers at Microsoft will be intrigued as to how an open source development project has managed to duplicate an 'identical' product to MS Office.

I agree with last posting btw - don't upgrade it just for the sake of having an upgrade. Does it do what you want currently?
