If it came with Office 2007, it should have come with the CDs as well. The key would be on the Office 2007 cd package. There should be information he received with the PC about what programs were installed - Office 2007 should be listed as a separate item. If he has a quote or an itemized invoice for the PC, it would show Office 2007 as a separate item.

If he can't find this information, he should go back to where he purchased it from and ask there.

If there is a CD with the purchase, look carefully for it, it looks quite identical to the Windows OS CD.

There is information on Microsoft's on how to convert a trial to a licensed version - I believe it can be done with a phone call. I can't give you the link from my phone, but just do a search on their site for Office 2007 trial.

I toll him that.but he doesnt seems like he wants to buy it i toll him i could found him a freeware aka open-office.
But he toll me he needed access 2007 anyway thx sari and the others for the info
I also guested it was a trial becuse sonystyle say hes type of pc come with 60 day trial guest he will have to wait until the trial its over to tell if its a trial but since he doesnt have the key its doesnt matter if its a trial or not its useless without the key thank you anyway
