Office 97 on Windows XP?

  Venus 11:50 25 Jan 03

I bought a new computer with WindowsXP but only Office 2000. I don't like it, it keeps crashing. I can't afford OfficeXP just yet and liked my old Office 97. I'd like to use Office97 instead, but will it work OK on XP? Anybody tried it?

Yes it will work.. But I am curious as to why Office 2000 keeps crashing.. Have you tried the repair function with office? Have you installed the service packs 1, 2 and 3? I have to admit I personally have found office very stable..

I didn't know about service packs for Office 2000 I've only downloaded those for the OS i.e. XP so far. Will try that but no time now. Will return tomorrow to let you know how I got on.
