Compatibility of "Save My Settings Wizard" option

Hi guys!
I'm using a computer with MS Office 2003, since i have all customized in the Office XP my computer has.... i wanted to know if the ".ops" file that i have created with "Save My Settings Wizard" on Office xp will work with no trouble for Office 2003.

Be careful about relying on the 'Save My Settings Wizard.' I've tried to use it to transfer my Office2003 files/folders and other settings from XP to a new computer and it did not work well. Some random settings were saved, others were not, and who knows if there were any corruptions or problems that I don't even know about. My best advice is before doing anything, back up everything on a separate device (i.e. memory stick, external hard drive, etc.) so that you can recreate your files and folders if you have to.

Thanks a lot for the advice, i didn't know that the function could also modify files and folder i thought that the function was only for the customization of the buttons and panels...
what i did was to use an old office xp screenshot to rearrange the buttons manually

thanks for that advice!
