Since MS Works Suite 99 came with my old Dell computer, I want to install it
on my new computer. I don't know that 20 digit Prodouct ID nor can I find the
Certificate of Authenticity that came with the older computer. Any
suggestioons?

Your old Microsoft Works Suite 99 program that came with your
old Dell computer is likely an "OEM Version". The license for
that program cannot be transferred to a different computer. You'll
need to consider purchasing a new version of Works Suite for your
new computer.

Microsoft Works Suite 2005 (also includes Microsoft Word)

($99.95 - $20.00 rebate = $79.95) (good value)

I saw Works Suite for $50 the other day. So shop around. I
think it was CompUSA or BestBuy.

If you still have access to your old Dell and can bring up something like
Word, Click on HELP and About. It should show you the Product ID.
