I bought a new laptop which has a trial version of Office 2007. I have been using Office 2003 on this macjhine for a few weeks, & suddenly both excel 2003 & word 2003 have most functions greyed out, and excel and word are unusable. Excel & Word 2007 work fine (no protection is on). Could Office 20076 be disabling excel 2003 & word 2003?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This sound very interesting and strange issue. There are few things that you will have to check before we proceed in uninstallation and reinstallation of OFFICE 2003 and Office 2007 which I believe will be solution for this issue. First check if it’s only happening for documents which you created in Office 2007.

Also, I have seen its better to install the lower version of software over the latest version.
