My computer had to be reformatted and I saved all my information to a flash drive. Now since it has been reformatted Microsoft Office is not on the computer. Is there a way I can bring up those documents from my flash drive since my computer doesn't have microsoft Office?

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

You could download the proper <a href=”http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/downloads/HA010449811033.aspx”>viewer</a> (but you wouldn’t be able to modify the files), or you could download and install <a href=”http://download.openoffice.org/”>OpenOffice</a> which is compatible with MS Office, and is free.

=========
You can always copy and paste your microsoft office files to your newly reformatted hard disk drive. However, you cannot really open those files if your system has no Microsoft Office application installed. You have install those applications or you can download an office application reader software.
