Office 2003 to Office 2007

  Pine Man 11:18 04 Jun 2007

I have a PC running Vista Home Premium (beautifully!) and also have Office Pro 2003 installed.

I am getting Office 2007 (Full version) shortly and have read on other posts that you can use it to upgrade an existing installation of 2003.

My query is can I install 2007 without it upgrading or removing 2003 and run them side by side for a while?

Thanks for your response.

I am aware of the different file systems. 2007 will read the older file systems of 2003 but not vice versa unless you save the 2007 files in the older format.

My main concern is that I don't want to 'destroy' 2003 when I install 2007 and wonder if anybody has done it yet?

While I was typing my initial response you posted the link. Thanks for that I'll have a read but I don't actually intend to keep 2003 for very long.

Thanks for the response. I don't actually use Outlook so from what you say there is no problem running them side by side.

Loaded 2007 today alongside 2003. No problems -thanks for your advice.
