The only Office programs I use at all, Jim, are Excel and Word and I really wish I could get just those and nothing else. Don't know if I qualify as a heavy user, but I'd not wanna be without either.

I'm thinking the Google version is what my friend might have been using and having a lot of compatibility issues with, but I can't swear to that. I've used Google's spreadsheet thingees only a little and I do recall I didn't really like them at all. Think I'll be happiest with the Excel and Word to which I'm accustomed, just don't wanna rent them from Bill Gates if I can help it.

Likely I'll first have a look at the OpenOffice Dave's recommending and see if that's close enough. If not, I'll look at purchasing the originals from one of the third-party sources.

I do appreciate the input.
