    Changing product keys for MS Office versions will require users to make changes within the registry.  Knowledge Base article 895456 located @ http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/895456/en-us will provide a step by step process for changing your product keys. 
    *WARNING*:  Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. It is recommended you back up the registry prior making any changes. As added measures of caution, have all critical files backed up in case the system crashes and/or the registry could not be restored from your backup.  Modify the registry at your own risk.


    *NOTE*:  If you try to open any Office programs after you complete the steps, you receive a message that prompts you for a valid product key.  Please re-post here if you need further assistance. Have a great day!!!


    Thank you
