    Need to know if I have to uninstall old Office to load new one. Is it more
    efficient?
    thanks..

    It all depends on what you want to do. It is absolutely not necessary to
    uninstall the old product before installing the new one. Indeed, it is
    possible to run multiple versions of Office suite on the same machine
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928091. The only exception is that
    Microsoft Outlook can only be run only in one version - either the old
    version (not a good idea anyway) or the new one.

    If you have enough disk space, then you should clearly keep the old version
    as you may want to get used to the new Ribbon system in Office 2007 and
    Office 2010 but you will get the option to remove the old version should you
    wish to when you install the new one.

    Hope this helps.

    No. If you have purchased an upgrade, though, it may be easier to leave the
    old version on.

    If you have trouble or further questions, please post back with more
    details, such as what "old" and "new" versions you are referring to. Several
    are still supported.
