:) [i] Okay, I am in school online. In one class they give you Microsoft Office student 2007 installation dick for free and the trial product key. My trial is up! Is there anyway I can get a new product key and keep the service going or am I stuck having to buy a new product key? I'm a single mom and broke but need to know this a.s.a.p because I have three essays due tomorrow at midnight and no microsoft. Help!! Thanks a bunch!

If you need an instant solution, check out Open Office. It offers the same features as Microsoft office for free.

If you want to continue using Microsoft's product, you're going to need to buy the full product. Being on a budget myself, I can tell you that Open Office is a real life saver! :)

Hope that helps! Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you. :)

+1 to open office for students.

it's not "exactly the same" as MS office, but it will get the job done and you can save the files in office format. no need to make sure that the person you're writing the document for has anything special

Okay, lets pretend I'm super Duper Stupid (I do ask alot of dumb questions)and I just typed up an essay. Could you give me step by step wat you mean by switching it to microsoft format? Is it just gonna be an option when I save the essay or is there something need to do to make it save as a microsoft file? I just dowloaded Open Office I've have a peek and all. So many words I dont understand, but I will take the time to st and learn it. But for now, what do I doabout the "metaphore"? lol

When you go to save a document you typed in Open Office, you will want to save it as a .doc file, rather than the extension that Open Office natively uses.
  • Go to File > Save As.
  • Name the file whatever you would like.
  • In the Save at type: box, select Microsoft Word (.doc).
  • This will save it as a format that anyone with Microsoft word can read. :)
