    I have an old laptop that is dying. I bought a new laptop and want to move
    Office from the old unit to the new one. The version of Office on the old
    laptop is one I purchased (didn't come with the computer). Please advise on
    how to move the software. I think I can get the product key from the old
    computer but can't locate the original software cds.

    Thanks

    Without cds, you're out of luck. Start here: How to replace lost, broken, or
    missing Microsoft software or hardware
