I have Windows XP with Microsoft Office 2000 installed on my computer. I need to update my Office program and want to install Microsoft Office 2007. Should I delete Office 2000 from my computer before I install Office 2007? After installing Office 2007 will I have problems with documents previously created in Office 2000?

I normally uninstall older versions of office & reboot the system before installing newer versions. But that is just me.

Office 2007 is backwards compatible and will read Office 2000 files. But not the other way around unless you have the compatibility pack installed.
In the beginning there was the command line.
