I'm running Win XP SP1

Just wondering if it will cause any problems if I add Powerpoint from Office 2000 to a machine which has Office 2002 with SP3 applied.

What's the position with Forward and Backward compatibility with Icrosoft programs?

Thanks

blast9,

The general consensus is that it's best to

1) install the older applications BEFORE you install the newer ones
2) install them in different folders

e.g.
c:\program files\msoffice2002-xp\
c:\program files\msoffice2000\

cheers
