Running Microsoft XP Professional - SP2 w/ latest

How do I update to Office 2003? Or even just Word 2003? I have been to vendor sites including Microsoft and e-Bay and can NOT make heads or tails about what I need to do.
The reason this has come up is I am trying to write macros/procedures and use Controls and/or Forms in MS Word and cannot get Controls and/or Forms and/or Macros to work (using SAMS Word 2000 VB Ref and MS VB Ref downloaded from MS Web site). I am writing this stuff for a friend who is running 2003.
Obviously, I am a rookie, yet still a once-proud MS Word aficionado who could make Word stand on its head and impress and amaze associates and impressionable and voluptuous admins and potential employers etc., etc., etc., ...zzzzzzz...whuh?!?!huh??snork...
If I need to upgrade, it is not evident to me. I'd be GLAD to have an excuse to spend the money.
I am appropriately embarrassed, but at this point I do not give a rat's ***. Is it me, or should this stuff not be easier to figure out? (It's probably me)
Any help given is appreciated.
Thanks for any help you can give.
