My daughter attends a college that has upgraded to MS WIN 2000 and MS Office 2000 Prof. She uses one of my computers for homework with WIN 98 and Office 98 Small Business. She could of course use one of the college's machines but due to several circumstances needs to do hoework at home.
DELL tells me Office 2000 no longer available but Office XP Prof can handle files developed by the College using Office 2000 Prof.
I would like to know if the immediately foregoing is true. I suppose it means "backwards compatibility."
I would like to know why she couldn't use an older OS, ME or 98 for example, with Office XP Prof with the same results.
I want to use DELL as I want the mfg to be in business awhile. So far I have purchased two computers and the mfgs are "out of business."
