It appears you did not Activate your version of Office 2003 within the allotted period of time.  When this happens, Office programs go into Limited functionality mode until you Activate the product.  Unfortunately, you can no longer activate it through the software, when this happens, you must call Microsoft and have them activate it over the phone and issue you a reference number to unlock Office.  Check this article:

If you need a phone number, check out http://support.microsoft.com, then click the Contact Microsoft link.

Agreed. If you do not activate the product within an allocated time frame, functionality is lost.
