MS Office 2003 wants a product key after installed for 3 years???
I have MS Office for Students and Teachers 2003. The first computer it was
installed on was stolen however I re-installed it to my newer one and it has
been fine for the past 3 years when I installed it to the newer PC.
In Jan 2010. Word and Powerpoint won't open, the windows installer comes
up and then it asks for my Product Key, which I have but it won't recognize.
However Excel still opens and runs fine. Why would only some components of
this package function?? And why is it asking for my product key now?

I am having a terrible time with a corrupted shared excel workbook. In my
case, this shared workbook has been restored from a good backup but as soon
as the users try to access the shared workbook, the file becomes corrupted.
The users are accessing the file from different computers and different
locations (multiple offices). I believe that there are some temp files that
contain old sessions of excel as with one user when she opens the shared
file, her version of excel will take a long time and she gets the message

Message posted from http://www.ExcelForum.com
When you open a csv file - ANY csv file - in XL, it will by default
convert to "(have) columns in it". That's a function of how XL opens csv
files, not whether the file, as saved, "has columns in it".
The file saved as csv *IS* csv - no columns. Try opening it in another
application (e.g., Notepad).

I can only think of Amazon.com or eBay.
However it is virtually impossible to get a file created by a non-US version
into a US one. There are some very tedious steps to export and import but
you lose so much information it really isn't worth it.
