    I have Office 97 and it is not supported by Microsoft anymore. I can't print out any documents. Is Office 03 supported by Microsoft. I interested in buying a copy.

    Why not buy Office 2007, which is for sure supported?

    Unlike John, apparently, I am not fond of the new "ribbon" and some of the other changes made in Office 2007 (I have a copy, but never use it, preferring to keep working in 2003.)
    MS has dropped mainstream support for '03, although "extended support" for it will run through either 2014 or 2017, depending on the version of '03 (confusing, isn't it?)
    Personally, unless you need to have the new formats, etc. and must use Office for some reason, I would suggest you get Open Office, which has nearly all the functionality of MS Office, has a standard toolbar and, incidentally, is free!

    I hope all works well.
    Actually, I can't see how support, or the lack of it, would address your stated problem, "I can't print out any documents." If you have a valid copy of '97, you should still be able to work in it, including printing.
    Perhaps you got a new printer, and the company that made it does not make drivers for '97 anymore?
    At any rate, OO should deal with that.
