Probably an FAQ

Is it possible to have office 2000 and office 2003 on the same partition/disk? Are there problems with accessing saved files? TIA.

Worried about File compatibility problem?

In reply to: Probably an FAQ

Yes you will found out that some of the office 2003 file can not be read by older version.

It is better if you look for a conversion utility, instead of installing two office version.

Thanks

You've both confirmed my worries. The reason was mainly for Excel which does not work as well in 2000 as in 2003. I will install it on another disk. Thank you again
