I've installed Office 2007 along Office 2003 under XP. Both work, but if you switch from one to the other they go through their setup routine again.
So when I installed Office 2010 in Windows 7 I left out MS Access, so I could install Access 2003. Works flawlessly/
I don't expect any problems if you uninstall the Office 2010 first, and only then install Office 2003.
I have just installed a new computer, Dell XPS 8300, 64 bit. It is a great computer and I love it. My problem is that it came with the new Word Office 2010. I am 77 years old and very used to my old Word 2003. The new Office Word is so much different and I just do not want to bother with having to learn all the new stuff, It is very confusing. Also my husband is 82 years and it is very frustrating to him.
My question is can I install Word 2003 on the new compute? Also will the data on the new Word automatically go on the Word 2003 or do I need to uninstall the Word 2010. I still have the backup CD from the Word 2003 and could easily reload it.
Please help, I hope that I have explained this sufficiently. I do not know all the computer lingo. Thanks so much for your help.
