Just making up a faster pc for our boy.The old one has Office 2003 but he had the discs stolen along with other items in the house.Tried installing my Office 03 but it won't activate so have installed my old Office 2000.Are docs,spreadsheets,etc, backwards compatible and is it possible to copy 03 emails to Outlook 00?

Might be able to - export the emails as a PST file and contacts as a CSV file.

BTW if you like you can ring MS, explain your situation and you should be able to reactivate Office 2003.
