Hi accidentaly bought the upgrade version of Office 2003 instead of the full retail. But on the box it says if I have a previous microsoft product, such as a"planned version of Works 8", then I can install the software. Does that just mean that this came out before works 8 and if i get that, then I will be able to use the MS Office 2003? It's cheaper to buy works then to send the upgrade software back and buy the other version.

No, it means Works 8 is older than Office 2003 so you can use the upgrade version on it..

If it were newer, then you would be "down-grading" and that is normally not allowed..
