How can I check the expiry date on my office trial version?

    I recently activated the OEM trial version of MS Office on a PC that I was
    using for other applications before. I seem to remember that the expiry date
    displyed at activation was shorter than I expected and wanted to check this.
    So far the Office applications have not prompted me with warnings about the
    expiry. How can I display this information?

    Thanks, Peter

    Whenever you start you get nagging alerts informing you that you have xx
    days left or xx times left to use this application.

    You can also check whether or not it is trial by going to:

    Windows Logo/Word Options/Resources/About or open any Office 7 program and
    substitute Word for the application name.

    You DID search this group before posting? There's the SAME question and
    answer only FOUR HOURS before you posted.
    I'll paste my answer....

    Open Office and click on Help-Activate Product and it will tell you when the
    trial expires.
