    I have read on the net people saying that Word 97 will run fine on XP and others that say you will encounter problems. I am running XP Pro SP2. I am asking here as I trust you all here more than other places :D

    I would 2nd that, OpenOffice is a fantastic product, there is a very stable Beta available, version 2.0. You can have OpenOffice open a Microsoft Word/Excel/Powerpoint document and also save it by default as a Microsoft Word/Excel/Powerpoint document.

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers :D

    Hi
    There is no better judge than you. try it on your setting. problems differ from setting to setting and from computer to computer.
    1-make restore point using system restore
    2- install totaluinstall2 (free)
    read about totaluninstall2 and how to use it in these threads
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/show...total uninstall
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/show...total uninstall
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/show...total uninstall
    3-install word 97 through total uninstall
    4-you are the judge now
    If every thing is ok and you like it then fine. If however problems occured then
    1-uninstall first using add/remove
    2-restart IMPORTANT
    3-uninstall its "leftovers" if there are any using TU2
    4-restart again IMPORTANT
    NOW IF HOWEVER YOU FEEL THAT SOME THING IS STILL WRONG WHICH I DOUBT
    THEN DO SYSTEM RESTORE USING THE RESTORE POINT YOU CREATED.
