The best option is to install VirtualBox and then install Win7 and Office in this virtual machine. Also install VirtualBox additions and enable bidirectional host clipboard sharing.

Another option is Wine, but it's not working perfect.

Or use LibreOffice if you doesn't need the full Office suite and don't want to pay license fees.

Regards, Tobias

Microsoft Office is not compatible with linux. it only works in windows and Mac systems.

if you still need office in linux system then install virtual machine inside linux and installing windows OS in virtual machine and use office.
