    I know that when I install a newer version of office I can keep the existing
    version.
    1) When I rebuild my laptop I installed Office 2007 (no previous version of
    office was installed). Can I now install office 2003 to co-exist with 2007? I
    teach at the professional level and oten I'm ask how to do something in a
    previous version (I don't want to go back prior to office 2003) that I've
    done in 2007 and it would be nice to have both on my system (I have the CD
    for both).
    2) Can I have more than two versions of Office on a system, e.g. 2003, 2007,
    2010?

    The MS Recommended method is to install earliest version first, run MSUpdate
    for critical updates (You may have to run several times) Amend any shortcuts
    to be version specific, eg Word to Word 2003, finally install later version,
    and MSUpdate again
    By default 2003 and later installs to a version specific folder
    You can only have a single instance of Outlook installed
    The latest Office version will be default

    If you haven't used these already - it would be helpful for both you and
    your students:

    2007 Interactive Guides For 2003 - for:

    * Access 2007, * PowerPoint 2007, * Excel 2007, * Word 2007, * Outlook 2007

    You might want to experiment on a computer that has 2007 and 2003 already
    existing.

    Can previous versions of Microsoft Office co-exist with the Office 2010
    Beta?

    If you are offered an ´Upgrade¡ upon installation, Office 2010 (with the
    exception of Outlook) can co-exist with previous versions of Office by
    selecting that option from within the ´Customize¡ menu. Microsoft Office
    Click-to-Run installations will co-exist with other installations of Office
    by default.

    * * Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft SharePoint Workspace cannot co-exist
    with previous versions so you will need to select one version of the
    program to have installed on your computer. * *

    MUST use 32 bit version of Office 2010 to co-exist with previous Office!

    Nice step by step tutorial for install and customize during install.

    Also, consider downloading this free resource - a data viewer for a lot of
    these tips I offer to this newsgroup - you can download these resources and
    there are NO email registration OR registration fees to use these
    resources.

    My company offers a very helpful summarized online source information for
    vital Office 2010 beta and Office 2007 links at this page:

    http://www.encouragersoftware.com/profile/microsoft-office-2010.html

    or you can take the time and download a free data viewer - Product Scope 7
    Viewer (included in the Product Scope 7 install program)

    and the Microsoft Office 2010 Profile Exchange - Web Update Program
    (install program containing Microsoft Office 2010 and Office 2007 data).

    available at http://www.encouragersoftware.com/download.html

    This is not a gimmick - without ANY cost to you, just some time to download
    and install the viewer if you choose, or just use the abbreviated online
    version.

    There are no registration fees or email registration to use Product Scope 7
    Viewer.
