LH could also get PowerPoint Viewer. Why don't you talk him into that too.

Yes I think I should :)
Personally I would choose Microsoft Office above anything else
I love it, even the new version
and it has SO much more power than all the other clones

Agree, but you have to master the $100+ hump.

The Office 2007 I do use every day. Those are the most used programs in my arsenal.

techgranny, Barcelona is one of the nicest cities in Europe. And if it is for the Gaudi buildings only.

OK. Heres the story.
I have PowerPoint Viewer
I have Foxit
I did have MS Word Viewer (but had forgotten to re-instal it after my last Vista re-instal). It is now installed.
A few weeks ago, I installed Open Office (to help a member with a problem) and then un-installed it.
PowerPoint Viewer will not work on my housemates old XP, so I installed Open Office for him.

No, since I re-installed Word Viewer, I can now view everything. I thank you for your concern :)
