Ok this is an odd request but I'm taking a computer concepts class in college. I have these litlte assignments to complete that must be done using office 2007. I downloaded the compatability pack from microsoft so i can save and open docx,xslx and pptx files. However there are step by step instructions for these assignemnts and I did as much as I can do using office 2003. I have no problem with office 2003 and I just can't justify paying extra money for 2007 when after this class i'll never use it. Long story short I just need some help from you guys to help me complete the addtl steps to complete the projects that I can't do in 2003. Any takers?

Strange....

My other half has a brand new computer w/ Office 07 and I could not open and/or use the files. I have a new computer too but I re-installled my Small Business 2000. Did not want to pay the big bucks for the "upgrade" either. I did download the converters and I can read the docs. As far as making changes, I was able to after the files had been converted. At least I have been able to if the original doc came from Office 07. Someone else may have to step in here since it apears that isn't working for you.

If you do get stuck "upgrading", save the rect. and write it off. Since he has websites that need constant attention he writes his off. I think you would be able to do that for school expenses - especially if it's work related and if your work is not paying for your schooling.

Why not download a trial version of the Office 2007 software from Microsoft?

It'll be good for about 60 days. Then you can uninstall it and download a different version.

You can also use it in your browser (according to the link below).

You'll either learn to love it, or really hate it. In either case, you won't have to PAY for it and you'll get your homework done on your own.

Educational expenses can only be written off after a certain percentage of your adjusted gross income is met. It used to be 2% but I'm not sure if the amount is still correct. That means that if you have a job and are going to school part-time or have a spouse with a good income, you may never get to the point of writing off expenses.

If you itemize your deductions you can still deduct education expenses related to your job-but there is a pretty low cap on it, about $3000 a year I think.
