    I currently run Word 2003, Works Database, Works Spreadsheet and Money in
    Works 9. Will I have to uninstall before loading Office 2007? (Money is the
    only one I dont want to lose)

    No. Works can peacefully coexist with Office 2007 and H & S will not
    overwrite any part of Works. The only thing you will have any problem with
    is Word 2003 which is part of Works Suite that you apparently have and Word
    2003 can also run side by side with Office 2007, just do a custom install
    and tell Office 2007 setup not to overwrite any previously installed
    components. See the following KB article about half way down to keep the
    two Word versions from configuring each time you run a different version.

    Using the steps to edit the registry you would also need to do the same for
    Office 11, substituting Office 11 for Office 12 in the instructions.
