Office 2003 works with Windows 7.

HOWEVER, you can't upgrade between 32-bit and 64-bit. Whenever you move between architectures like that you have to fresh install.

Only if you stay with 32-bit and do an in-place upgrade will Office 2003 stay "intact" and continue to work exactly as you have it now.

If you move from 32-bit to 64-bit you'll have to reinstall Office, but it will work after that.
