Microsoft Word 2002 and 2003......Can I install both of them on my computer if I put them in different locations/folders. I like 2003 but there are files that are not compatible that work with the 2002 version. Specifically, when I try to use mail merge with files I created using MS Works.....the 2003 version of Word will not recognize the files that were created with the 2002 version. I never had a problem until I upgraded.

If anyone has experience with this, please let me know. BTW... I am running Windows Vista and both are compatible with that OS.

These can be run run side by side. You do have to install 2003 first theninstall 2000 this will stop the upgrading process from auto starting. Make sure you only add the apps that you wish to use as installing 2 instances of outlook will cause a problem.
