It is a question of me finding out before I buy a new PC so that I will
know whether or not to have Word 2007 installed as I do not use Word
much and 2000 will suffice for my needs if it is acceptable. I have
just asked a similar question in mircosoft.public.word.newusers so I
will let you know if I do any good. Thanks.
I expect that it will revert to classic view while using office 2000 Other
then that it will most likely work.

Getting updates is a hassle, though.

My guess is that for those of us still using Office 2000
upgrades are not that important!

I tried it, and the fact that Outlook Xpress was part of Office 2000, and
was inadvertently installed, threw Win 7 into a tizzy, so I had to clean up
that mess. I guess that if you are going to try it, exclude OE from the
process.

Office 2000 includes "Outlook" not Outlook Express

when I did my test install I left that part of it out


thanks for the warning though

I just got Windows 7 64bit and decided to upgrade from Office 2000
to office 2003. Really no difference. Then again, I can only speak
about Word, which is what I use in Office.

Are they compatible?
Yes. I run Office 2000 Pro and Office 2010. They both work fine. Mostly
I use the Office 2000 stuff but I'm using the 2010 stuff to get used to
the menus, etc.

Yes, that is what I am using.
Thanks everyone. Now I do not need to replace my Word 2000, which is
ideal for my needs.
