Specs: Windows XP
I have Office Professional 2003. What do I need to do or buy to upgrade to Office Professional 2007.

Office 2007 has a few new features in Excel and Word that are easlier to use and not found in Officer 2003.

Your recommendations

Thank you

(I do not want Vista on my computer)

i assuming you mean what version? doesn't matter which office
2007 package you get they all should work.

office 2007 is a little bit more power hungry all tho not to much
different tho if compared to 2003 so hardware wise if your using
2003 without any problems you won't have any dramas installing

Office 2007 works fine on XP.

Look here to see what comes in each package. If you use Access you will need at least Office Professional.

Buy the Upgrade version of the package you choose.

Once you have your upgrade disk, you can choose whether to upgrade all items (Word, Excel, Outlook etc.). You might want to search a bit more on Outlook 2007. I opted to stay with Outlook 2003, but upgrade Word and Excel.

If you have macros linked to Toolbar buttons you may have to do some customization of the Ribbon (the new Menu system), as there was no option to edit icon images and I had ten or so macros all with the same icon!

When saving Word and Excel files you will need to decide which format to use. A certain amount depends on who you send documents to and whether they have upgraded or have installed compatibility upgrades to open new formats.
