Move Office 2010 data to new PC with Office 2007

I have a W-7 PC that has Office 2010 installed. Probably single use, Magic JB Keyfinder identifies it as "Microsoft Office Single Image 2010".

Moving to a new PC with W-8.1

I have a Microsoft Office 2007 Pro Plus with a VLK, any number of PC's
I don't have any media to reinstall the Office 2010.

Easy solution is to install the Office-2007 and move all data over. 2010>2007
Is this possible?

If not, can I download 2010, load on new PC with original key and delete it it from the old PC.
Would only be installed on 1 PC.

(Info- I'm not proficient in any version of Office, I'm a simple IT)

Yes if you install Office 2007 on that other computer and copy the Office files (word, excel, powerpoint, Outlook PST and other documents) over to that other pc, it should work fine.

You may need to Install the Compatibility Pack.
See this guide from Microsoft:

You were right, it worked.
Just had a little problem placing the .pst files, in 8 and 8.1 they go in the User/Documents/Outlook Files
other than that, it was a lot simpler then others I've done.
