Hi all,
I am fairly new to NT administration. In the office we are running Office’97 and Outlook 98 (Corporate Mode). I was asked by my boss to go out and buy a copy of Office which version of Office should I get? What about Outlook? Most of the Workstations and servers are NT 4.0, we are planning to migrate to Windows 2000 which leads to another question when it’s time to migrate, which OS should I upgrade to? 2000 or XP. Thanks for your time!.

Are you running Microsoft Mail? If you are, Office XP is going to hastle you about Microsoft Mail. But, dont worry. We are running it here without any problems. Actually, during the install, you will STILL need to install Office 97, setup your mail,then install Office XP over it.
As far is OS is concerned, I can not answer you on that. We run NT servers with 95, 98, and NT clients.
I hope this helps.

I am an Enterprise admin for a 30,000+ computer domain. I inspite of the additional bells and whistles in XP and the additional year of support, I'd still recommend W2K Pro until the vast security concerns have been hammered out of XP. W2K Pro is much more secure at present than is XP Pro.

On the topic of Office. I'd suggest buying the latest version, because you are going to go there soon anyhow. Just be aware of the MS Access problem mentioned above. If it is a real concern for you then stick with Office 97 until you have a deliberate path forward with an acceptable time schedule.

The key here is to have a solid upgrade plan, then move forward.
