MS Office 2007 (Ultimate) Question about differences in Outlook, WORD - Should i upgrade
Posted on 2008-02-09
A client gave me a legal, unopened retail copy of Office 2007.
I currently use 2002 and am fairly happy with it.
Are there risks that people would warn me about for 2007, particularly for Outlook compatibility with old .PST files (i depend on being able occasionally to access outlook emails back to 1999, each quarter is in a different .pst file)
And to a lesser extent WORD (and EXCEL). I do not routinely use the other tools in the suite.
Currently i limp along okay with Outlook's idiosyncrasies of email (connection problems, hanging, crashes, infinite loops, etc. which don't happen that frequently, but do require restarting Outlook every few days and re booting maybe once a week- i realize i shouldn't complain, that's not a terrible track record)
I use Contacts only for email addresses, and Calendar for basic self-scheduling; and no other Outlook features.
and risks you know of?
