I am seeing things that suggest I can upgrade Microsoft Works 8.0 (that came on my new pc and is therefore OEM software) to Microsoft Office Professional 2003 with a retail upgrade. So I got one. Then I read on the box that you can upgrade a "planned version" of Works 8.0. Anybody know what the heck THAT means?

I am afraid to open the darn thing now, in case it doesn't work and I'm out $300+. Tried to get clarity on the microsoft website...didn't really help.

Can anyone tell me for sure if this will work?

I don't really know what the "planned version" is, just guessing that it means that you have the discs but not installed the program. Looking at Office 2003 upgrade page on Microsoft's site, it doesn't appear that you should have any problems as long as you have the Works 8.0 discs.
