Office 2000 & Windows 8

Hello,
Just had to buy a new laptop and unfortunately could ony get windows 8.
Tried to install Office 2000 but got a message
Error 1919 Error config oDBC dat source.
Visual foxpro database, ODBC error 6. Component not found in registry.Verify that the file Foxpro Database exists.
Can anyone explain, in simple words, how I can rectify this. I want to stick with Office 2000 because I use macros and don't want to have to learn writing macros in 2010.

  1. Best answer
    Microsoft Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 are FULLY compatible with Windows 8.
  2. Add Office 2013 too. Office 2000 is not supported by Microsoft anymore. Your only choice is to upgrade to something that isn't 13 years old.
  3. You could run it in XP mode, though it is probably more trouble than learning macros again.
