    Question Custom installation Office 2008?
    Err at the risk of harping on, is there any way to do a custom install of Office 2008?

    My work sends me my working pattern on an Excel spreadsheet thus (having committed to iWork) I ONLY wish to instal Excel rather than have everything else.

    I cannot see an obvious selection (dare I say 'unlike Windows' Office installations).

    Is it possible?

    I just installed Office 2008 using the "custom" option. (I only installed Word and PowerPoint.) Perhaps you missed it? Try again. The Office 2008 DVD install program can be used to remove components you don't want by removing the check from their respective selection boxes.

    Regards.

    Yes I must have missed it - I really hoped someone would come back and say something like that.

    Thanks a bunch.

    Yes I DID miss it, don't recall seeing that screen at all, perhaps I inadvertently clicked my mouse twice.

    Anyway, all done and thanks again.
