MS Office – Installing on your Office PC
Before you install Office 2007 please be aware of the following:

    1.      If installing on a PC where a previous version of Office has been used, Office settings
            held in your user profile will be migrated. This includes such things as Custom
            Dictionaries, window layouts and Outlook Mail Profile.

    2.      Files created within an Office 2007 application are by default saved in a new XML
            format and cannot be opened by previous Office versions (However, if the Office 2007
            compatibility tool kit is installed, as is on all Edinburgh Napier University Rev 6 PCs,
            users can open, edit and save Office 2007 XML format files using Office 2003).

    3.      Files created with previous versions of Office can be opened and edited by Office 2007
            and are by default saved back in their original Office format. Alternatively, once opened,
            the option exists to save them in the new XML format.
