hi harj103, welcome to the forums,

if you have purchased office, you should still have a product key or serial number.

you can install it again, after installing windows, and you can use the same serial number again.

i hope i understood your question properly, and i hope this helps.

Although not the method I would recommend Vista is on the upgrade path for windows 7 as an in-place upgrade which will leave existing applications un-touched

As long as you are moving from like to like or above version wise this is an option you may want to consider.

A quick search of the forum should provide more that enough discussion on this option and it's pros and cons :)
