    It is cheaper to download a beta version (Office 2010) from here free of
    charge until the new version comes out end June 2010. this version will
    take you until September 2010.

    Buying to more editions or 2 more licenses cost the same. You could look into
    purchasing Office 2007 Professional Plus which comes with 5 licenses if I am correct
    and is a VL version. This VL version will cost less than purchasing 2 other Retail
    Office 2007 Pro's. Inquire about it from your Microsoft Reseller

    Hello Brian B,

    Office Professional Plus 2007 is a Volume Licensing product that is
    inapprorpiate for use by consumers.

    Office Professional Plus 2007 is a favorite of Office counterfeiters. They
    prepare counterfeit discs and packaging that has Office Professional 2007
    printed all over, but the included disc installs a Volume Licensing
    installation of Office Professional Plus 2007, invaiably with an Invalid
    Product Key that is detected by the Office Genuine Advantage utility.

    Individual consumers should be purchasing retail licenses for Microsoft
    Office. Full retail licenses allow the product to be installed on two
    computers. OEM licenses, which are issued by major manufacturers when you
    purchase Office preinstalled on a new computer, are only permitted to be
    installed on the computer onto which they are first installed and are not
    permitted to be moved to any other computer. OEM licenses live and die with
    the original computer.

    Microsoft Office comes in many different editions of different combinations
    of the component programs. Don't make the mistake of "overbuying" Office,
    paying for an edition that has one or two programs that you'll never use.

    If you work for a larger company, they may be a participant in the Home Use
    Program (HUP). http://www.microsofthup.com/hupus/chooser.aspx?culture=en-US

    I have one copy I bought from JourneyED as my wife is a teacher in the public
    schools. it has printed on it (Licensed for use only by students and
    faculty). and we are trying to see if I can legally put it on our 3 home pc's
    2 desk tops we use all the time and a laptop we take with us when we are on
    the go. The inlaws just need to open the new excel extension they have office
    2003.

    Thank you all who have replied.

    No, please read the EULA. As to your in-laws, have them download and
    install the 2007 Office Compatibility package.
