Word is the same in both so, no problems there, but the database and spread sheet in works although a cut-down version of access and excel, do save with a different file ext. If I remember correctly you need to save your spreadsheet files with the excel ext. before transferring them to the new application.

You can't download Windows Office, only obtainable on a set of CD's. But to answer your question, no, it will not cause a conflict to have the two applications on your PC at the same time.

I had Works-Suite 2004 and Office XP side by side for a while until I transferred all data across.

Put Works 7.0 followed by Office 2003 onto daughter's laptop. No problem. But as Djohn says, you cannot legally download Office.
