Hello all :D . I need to run both office 2003 and office 2000 on my laptop. All the programs I use at work are on office 2000, and everything else I have designed on my laptop is in 2003. Any suggestions?

I don't see why you can't just install the two in different locations and be done with it. I beleive your only major hurdle in going to be with two versions of access.

Exactly what are you trying to accomplish.

Actually I figured it out. It seems that you need to install office 2000 first, and then office 2003, and there are some more options when you install office 2003, that allows it to work properly, I have test excel and access and they both work fine. The only problem seems to be word 2000, keeps giving me a install dialog, and if I cancel, it asks me to repair, but then it opens and works fine.

I don't see why you need to. 2000 and 2003 are comparably similar when it comes to file formatting and drivers. Feature sets are obviously different for each of the apps, but if your work requires 2000 why not just use that. You probably won't even use or miss the 2003 extra's.
