    New to Mac - Word won't work in Office 2008
    Hi all

    I installed Office 2008 a few months ago on my new imac - all the applications worked fine but now, 'Word' won't open at all - when I click on it a question mark appears over the icon. I have lost the disk also, so i can't try to re-install. As this is my first mac i haven't any idea what i need to do to to make it work!

    Any help greatly received!

    I would contact MS or Apple. Try to get a new disc from MS, hopefully you have proof of purchase...

    If you registered your copy of Office 2008 with Microsoft and you still have the product activation keys (should have three keys), give Microsoft Customer service a call and they will supply you with a new installation disk for a nominal cost plus shipping and handling.

    If you didn't register and likewise lost the product activation keys, then you are out of luck and will have to purchase another copy.
