Switching back to W7 Ultimate from W8 Pro - can I use my W7 key?

I took the plunge and installed W8 Pro. After a couple of months I've decided I really can't use the hybrid Tiles on a 24" screen. I've tried the 'Start' button fix but I still get large ugly Apps displayed in full 24" screen mode. So I'd like to move back to W7 Ultimate.
The question is 'will by W7 Ultimate Key have been deleted on the MS database as 'used' after I installed W8 Pro?
At the same time I installed MS Office 2007 on the W8 Pro install. Would I be able to re-install my Office 2007 on W7 Ultimate (where it originally was)?
I don't want to start the W7 reinstall and find it will cost me a lot of additional software costs!
Any help appreciated.

Keep an eye on your activation. It took a few days for mine to be rejected.
