Office 2000 And Office XP

  @Home 12:39 27 Mar 04

I have enrolled on a Computer course and the office software that is used is Office 2000. I know they are similar but the Access sofrtware is different. So I thought I'd use the all the Office 2000 applications for the course.

I have got Office XP installed on my PC. I have managed to pick up a copy of Office 2000 and are ready to install.

Can I install the Office 2000 WITHOUT having to uninstall Office XP and just use 2000 for the course work and XP for my usual office work?

Or do I have to go the whole hog and uninstall Office XP and then install Office 2000.

The whole hog - you can have multiple versions of Office but you must install in the order older -> newer.

VoG is correct. I had both Works Suite 2004 and Office XP on at the same time without any conflict but both use the same version of "Word".

JerryJay tried with Office 2000 and Office XP they also work fine except for "Word". As they are 2 different versions they are causing a bit of a conflict. click here

You could leave 2000 on but remove word, then install XP as a separate application and use the 2002 version of "Word" from that. All the other Office applications seem to work alongside each other without any problem.

you could try installing 2000 on a different partition if you have one......

Sorry for the delayed reply, thanks for the replys.

I have put 2000 in and left Office XP out for now.
