    Hey guys just wondering how can I update my Microsoft office 2002 to 2007 or other later versions? been using this 2002 version since 2004 and it's getting kinda outdated I guess haha.

    Do I have to download any service pack or do I have to buy a later version just to update it?

    Replies will be appreciated. Thanks!

    You don't need to upgrade only because a newer version is available. If what you have is working for you, why spend the money? Some people are still using Office 97. It works for them.

    Since you say you've been using Microsoft Office XP(2002) since 2004, can I safely assume that your computer is 4 years old or older?

    What's the processor type and speed, how much RAM is installed, and how large is the hard drive?

    The newer versions of Microsoft Office(2003 and 2007) are more processor-hungry and memory-hungry than the older versions, and they use more hard drive space.

    I still use Microsoft Office 2000 in an old desktop, and it works fine for what I need it for.
