Open Business Office 2007 Small Business Edition to Professional P

Open Business Office 2007 Small Business Edition to Professional P

Post by Qm9iIFptdW » Mon, 05 Feb 2007 12:44:00


My company recently purchased Open Business licenses (no software assurance)
for Office 2007 Small Business Edition. We now require Infopath 2007, which
isn't, however, included in the Small Business Edition but is included in
Professional Plus. Is it possible to convert or upgrade our open business
licenses from Small Business Edition to Professional Plus? Purchasing
Infopath separately will end up costing us more and providing us less
features than if we had purchased Professional Plus from the beginning.
Purchasing new licenses for Professional Plus means we wasted several
thousand dollars on now useless Small Business Edition licenses. What are our
options?

Contact your local Microsoft licensing consultant from whom you purchased your SBE licenses to see what is available - they will be the experts and can work with you to get the best deal possible.

People here are not employed by Microsoft and any opinions offered are worth - well, just about nothing.
