    After installing Office 2003 on my new Windows 7 computer I also installed
    Office 2007. There is now no sign of Office 2003 on the computer although all
    of document files are there.

    I believe I can run both if I set up a seperate user for each, but is there
    a good way to run both with the same user?

    Presumably you chose the "Upgrade" function when installing Office 2007?
    That would have replaced all the 2003 modules with 2007 with the exception
    of Outlook.

    Why do you want to?
    docs are not affected by an upgrade or uninstall of a program

    I did not do an upgrade when I installed Office 2007; it was a done as a new
    installation. I would like to be able to choose between Word 2003 and Word
    2007, at least until I am up to speed with 2007.

    Well you missed something then because AFAIK if you install 2007 with 2003
    already present it asks you if you would like to keep the existing
    applications or overwrite them.
