    I am using MSOffice 2007 professional and would like to open some files from
    earlier MSOffice versions (1997, 2000). Is there a package or download that
    can assist with this?

    Office 2007 should be able to open both Office 2000 and 97 files. What
    issue are you having?

    Not knowing exactly which program created the files there are three KB
    articles that may assist you.

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922847/ for PowerPoint 2007
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922848/ for Excel 2007
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922849/ for Word 2007

    Let us know if this helps or if you have more questions. The exact Office
    product would help (Word 97, Excel 2000 etc. and exact wording of any error
    messages.
