Default Excel 2003 back to Excel 2002

I have been using the Office 2003 demo ans like it.
I can't afford it right now.
So I have to go back to Office 2002 XP.
Will docs I have worked on in 2003 be able to
be read back into Word, Excel 2002 XP.
Is there anything I should do before
going back to 2002 XP before un-installing 2003
to make sure I can read my the doc in 2002 XP?
Thanks
Pete Carr

be different

The file format in all version of Excel from XL97 on are the same: a file
made any version (XL97, 2000, 2002,or 2003) can be opened in any other
version.
Have you recorded macros in 2003? If so you need to export them from the
Personal.XLS file and reimport them in the older version since the
Personal.xls files are kept in different locations.

best wishes

Most things are the same, so you'll probably be safe. If you used Data|List
in Excel 2003, the lists will be set back to ordinary lists in 2002.
