Word 97 in later versions of Word Jun 20, 2003

You are aware that you can make e.g. Word 2000 behave as an earlier version? You'll find the settings on the Tools/Options.../Compatibility tab.

I have no problems with mine but I run it on a high speed PC with XP. I don't know if it runs on a Mac, but I suggest you ask Trados about any of your Trados questions at
