    Welcome to TSG. Contact Microsoft and see about a replacement cd if you can't find your original.

    Wow, I wish I knew that was an option before I bought the external drive enclosure. Can you give me a heads up about the replacement cost?

    There is no such version as Microsoft Office Enterprise Suite 2007 Student Edition.

    You have either Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 or Microsoft Office Home And Student 2007.

    Here is the "Contact Us" site.

    You can't copy it from one computer to another. It has to be reinstalled.

    Well, if for some reason you don`t get it figured out there is always Open Office which is free, and compatible with Microsoft Office. It is found here: http://www.openoffice.org/index.html

    Thank you all for your help.

    flavallee, thank you for the direct link. I was looking at my order confirmation from when I purchased it, but at second look it is Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 (Student Edition). I think the (Student Edition) part was just referring to my discount. ;)

    Thanks for the idea, IMP49. I have tried OpenOffice before, but I think I am just spoiled on Office because I find it very difficult.

    Browse through the listings here and you may be able to find a used copy at a good price.

    I needed a copy of Microsoft Office 97 Professional Edition last year for a volunteer computer that I was working on, and I found a used copy here for $25.00.

    No, you can't just copy the files. Office doesn't work that way. Unfortunately, it looks like you'll have to either re-buy Office or use OpenOffice. That was an expensive lesson in keeping CDs in a safe place. I store them in CD binders, and I haven't lost one since I bought my first computer many, many years ago.

    To add to what DoubleHelix said, if you're going to pay good money to buy a Windows operating system or Office suite or any other program, treat your CD's/DVD's and their product keys/serial numbers like gold because you never know when you're going to need them again.
