My PC OS is Windows 7 Pro and I am using Office 2003

 

I want to install Office 2010 on it.

 

I don't want two Office programs but I do want to keep My Doc's etc in the new Office 2010.

 

What is the procedure?

Hi fred93 :)

The documents you created with Office programs aren't related to it. You can simply uninstall Microsoft Office 2003, and install Office 2010 and you'll be able to use them again. Simple as that.

This is not a big problem but Microsoft Office 2010 ask if you want to keep in older format or if you want to change to new xlm format.(doc to docx, ppt to pptx, xls to xlsx)

So how do I answer that question? I don't even know what those formats are! Are they asking that just for my present files or for all files--past and future?

They're just askingif you want to upgrade your file format or not when you open an old file.

It's not important for common users. They add very specific feature (like some macro in exel) but just the expert use that function.

If you have any other questions : just ask !

fred, you won't have to convert your files to newer format of Office unless you open them and save them. THEN it'll notify you of the extension change and if you're sure of your choice. Simple as that.

No problem :) It's really simple. Uninstall Office 2003, install Office 2010, and you're done.
