Dee,

Word is part of a Microsoft Office Program, it is not free, the only way you can get it is to buy it (Or steal it! But I do not personally recommend theft.) It does not generally come with a new computer unless it is part of a more expensive package that includes Microsoft Office.

Dee,
I've been using 602Pro, which is free. It's almost the same as MS Office (the icons aren't as good looking!) but it's based on the MS Office engine. It's a 13Mb download from http://www.software602.com

It has word processor, spreadsheet, database, photo editor and album, and album to keep files together (like MS Binder). You could give it a try before you buy MS Word, and see if you like it. You have to register, but I've been using it a while and had no spam etc from them.

When using Microsoft Word I click Tools, Envelopes, but when I click on the address book icon I get the following message: "Logon failed. You must logon to Microsoft Exchange to access your address book. What is Microsoft Exchange and how do I use it?? Any suggestion will be appreciated.

If you have WIN98 computer and MSWorks, I believe the Works word processor is now based on Word. I know this is the case with Works 2000 and up, but not sure if the case for earlier.

Speaking of Microsoft Word. I now have MSWord 97 and Microsoft Outlook version 1998 (not using Express)on my computer. I have Office 2000 disks ready to install.

Do I need to uninstall both of the above programs and if I do that do I have to manually reenter all my contacts and my Word documents from my backup disks? Someone who seems knowledgeable said I don't have to do anything about the Word and Outlook program contents.

Can anyone help me?

You do not have to do anything to prepare for the Office 2k installation.

When you install, it will ask to remove previous versions of word and outlook. Say "YES" to that.

When you first start up the new version of outlook, it will ask if you want to use previous settings, say yes. That will keep all of your contacts/emails/settings.

Word files will be untouched, and you can open them with the Word 2000 just like you did with Word 97.

One of the nicest starter programs is MS Works - they have it a "suite" format now. The word processor used to be really nice for beginners. They have "WORD" as the word processor now, which is somewhat of a pity. I paid $150 canadian for MW Works and its worth every penny. It has a database, word processor and some handy libary features, as well as some household finance programs.

There should be a "setup.exe" file which is the installation file - if not, you will have to install from the original disks or CD.

Double-click the setup file to start it, then it will give you instructions and options - if you want a full installation (everything) or just parts of the suite - for example, you may not want to install some of the programs that you never use. When unsure, I usually choose the recommended option - you can always remove or add stuff later.

Is there a simple way of creating an address book of a list of names and addresses to do envelopes for invitations in the MSWords program so I do not have to do them individually with TOOLS then labels and envelopes. It only allows you to enter one and it is lost when that envelope is printed.Hope I have made this clear enough as I am a newbie in MS Words and have no manual. Thxs for the help.

You don't need a manual to get help.

Per my Word 2000, you can click on help, then "Office on the Web", and get to the Work Homepage.

If you are using another Word version, it will be similar.

I need help please! I have Windows ME and for the last couple of days when I try to open Word 2000 my computer freezes up and says that resources are low and the system is unstable. Acrobat and Excel open without a problem.

Can I re-install Word from the CD?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Julie

Julie, you might need to add more memory (RAM chips). How much RAM do you have now? Also, you could try increasing the size of your swap file (the free space on your hard drive that is used to transfer items temporarily and acts as a type of RAM). Your Word packaging should tell you how much RAM is recommended to run the program. That is usually a minimum, so more is better. Good thing RAM is so cheap these days!

A good point by Deb, as ME is such a memory hog.

Yes, you can go to add/remove programs and click on Word, click on remove. It will than ask you if you want to delete or repair. Click repair. It will ask you to insert your CD when it needs it. Just follow the prompts.

Let us know how you come out!

I have MS Publisher installed on a computer that is running very slowly. I would like to install Publisher on my new computer. If I uninstall MS Publisher from my old computer, will I be able to use the same program discs to install on a new computer? Will Microsoft allow me to use the same registration code since the Publisher program I have is a one-user version?
