Upgrading from Trial Version of Office 2007 to Office 2007 Standar

I have Office 2003 installed, then installed the Trial Version of Office
2007, and just bought the Standard Microsoft Office 2007 UPgrade version. Do
I need to uninstall the trial version first?

Thanks in advance.

I'm afraid to lose things in Outlook. Do you know if that's a danger?

Upgrades and software installation should not affect your data. Make a
backup of your Outlook data file to be on the safe side.
There was a backup tool for Outlook 2003, but i don't know if it still works
with Outlook 2007

Hi Arlene,

Always a good idea to back up your files before doing any software update, upgrade, removal or installation (Murphy likes 'software'
<g>).

If the trial edition of MS Office 2007 is the same as the one you're purchasing and it's working correctly (run the Office 2007
diagnostics from one of the apps (In Word - Alt, T, O, R) to check and there is a risk of things that are working breaking,
including data loss (although it's not a high probability.

The MS Office 2007 trial editions are the same product as the matching editions on the retail CDs. The product key type determines
how setup behaves as far as removing/leaving old apps during the 2007 installation. (The trial edition leaves older apps, the
retail install default is to remove them).
