MS Office 2003 compatible with Windows 7?

Hi
I'm a little confused by some of the posts I've read about Office 2003 & Win 7.
I just bought an Acer Aspire with Windows 7 installed and am using a trial version of Office 2007.

  1. Just for the record, can I replace Office 2007 with Office 2003 if I want?
  2. Or if I decided to use Open Office instead, will that be compatible with Win 7? eg. will OOffice spreadsheets read MS Excel?

Thanks for your help.

Both Office 2003 and Ofc S&T 2003 work with Windows 7 just fine.

Open Office does as well.

Use Revo Uninstaller to uninstall Ofc Trial as it is a bear that can otherwise corrupt the OS just from its removal.

Thanks. I'm glad to know that.
Could you please explain Revo Uninstaller? And where I get it? Or how?
Thanks

Download Revo from its website via Google; choose free version.

It finds leftover Registry and Files after running Program's own uninstaller. Don't restart until you complete it's Next steps to Delete all bolded Reg items and Files with program's name.

Note it sets a restore point before every uninstall so they can be rolled back, even from Repair CD or DVD.

I'm using Office 2003 on my Windows 7 x64 with no issues. There is also a program to remove Office 2007 if you can't do it normally:

Thanks for all the help. I'll let my Office 2007 trial version play out for another 25 days and then give it a shot.

Thanks for the help. I installed Office XP Professional after getting rid of Office 2007, and the install went fine. However, there is one annoyance. When I open up a Word document, or a new one, I see four margin corners on the page. (This is on my laptop.) Since I'm unable at this time to connect the laptop to a printer, I don't know if the document will print that way, but when I transfer a document to my PC that also has MS Office XP Professional, and is connected to a printer, the margin squares do not show up or print. In any case, just seeing them is an annoyance.

Is there a way to turn these off?
I'd include a screenshot but I'm not sure if I can put one on this post.
Thanks

You likely have an Asian language enabled in Start=>Run=>Microsoft Office Tools=>Language Settings. Disable the language.

If not, they can be turned off in Tools=>Options=>View.

Sorry, I'm not getting this. I'm not running Windows XP. I'm using Windows 7 and trying to use MS Office XP on it. Going to Start=>Run=>Microsoft Office Tools=>Language Settings. Disable the language - is not an option because then I am instructed to put in my install disc (XP).

If I use Tools>Options>View, which check box am I looking for?

Open the start menu and type in Microsoft Office XP. Look for a program called Office XP Language Settings. Even if that doesn't work, the margin corners only appear on the screen. They will not be printed on to anything you print (or at least it has never happened when I printed something).
