Hello,

There is probably a better group for this question. I searched and there are
a ton of groups beginning with "Microsoft."

So I decided to come here. Somebody here alsways seems to have an answer.

Anyway, does anyone know where I can download a Microsoft program which is
simply called "Word?"

I need it to send some forms (templates) to work. I'm told this is the only
program that will work.

Can anyone help me find where to download it? I went to Microsoft downloads
and there are 291 replies when you put "Word" in a search for downloads.

Thanks,

Sammy

Word is very mucn un-free. For most uses, a free downloadable option
would be OpenOffice (OpenOffice.org) Word 2003 is gonna run you about
200 bucks if you decide to buy it. So, you might want to ask why exactly
you need to use Word, and/or if work is planning on supplying you with
this software you "need"

I don't think you can, legally. Microsoft like people to buy a 'licence'
along with the CD and so on.

If your employer requires you to use a specific software package, then
your employer should provide it to you.

Microsoft Word is a word processing program. It is not distributed
free.

If you need to acquire a copy your cheapest method would be to
purchase a copy of Microsoft Works Suite which includes a fully
licensed and functional copy of Microsoft Word.

Note that there are two different Microsoft products - Microsoft Works
Suite which includes Microsoft Word and Microsoft Works which does not
include Microsoft Word.

Good luck

On another subject ... your email address:
From: "sammy" <(E-Mail Removed)>

Are you really part of toast.com, located in Brisbane, Queensland,
Australia?

If not, change your munged address to "(E-Mail Removed)" whereas the
word "example" is reserved for stuff like this. Using toast.com is doing
a disservice to the folks who own that domain name. Getting them more
spam, actually.

Nice one. The food fish can't get to their "followup" buttons quickly
enough.

You might want to give AbiWord a try. It's a word processor
that works similar to usoft Word and will accept files from
several different word processors. It is Freeware.

As mentioned it's not free.

To send forms or create, email will send forms / templates.

Wrong idea.


Well there you go 2 seconds from www.google.com to
http://www.microsoft.com/office/eula/en.mspx

for -

Home Use Rights Licenses

The Home Use Program increases employee productivity and maximizes the
