I have several Windows 7 Professional installation keys and I believe they have gotten mixed in with Microsoft Office 2007 Professional keys in an excel spreadsheet.  Is there any way to tell the two apart?

They are the same construction and length so for retail Windows and Retail office, no. If Windows is OEM (likely), it will say OEM in the key and that will help.

Run Recover Keys (recoverkeys.com) and that WILL tell you what keys are what on a machine. You can get a version that works over the network as well.
