Office 97 Tips

Keeping Your Old Office

If you'd like to install Microsoft Office 97 and still retain (for a while anyway) your old Office 4.x or Office 95, all your have to do is tell Office 97 Setup not to delete your old version (you'll be asked--just watch for the message).

Because Office 97 will be placed into the Registry, double- clicking a document icon will open the appropriate Office 97 application. However, you can still open an older (Office 4.x or Office 95) application and then open documents by choosing File|Open.

Note, too, that the new ClipArt Gallery will be used by all your installed versions of Office. That is, if you choose to insert ClipArt into a Word 6 document, you'll be presented with the Office 97 version of ClipArt.
