What do you mean exactly?

If you are talking compatibility between Windows7 and Office 2007, there should not be any issues. I have Office 2007 and W7 installed on my machine.

Unless you are doing an upgrade installation of Windows 7(like from Vista to Win7), then you will have to re-install Office 2007 anyway, but you should be able to run Office 2007 under Win7.

Yea if you do not backup you current files they will be lost if you are installing W7 on the same hard drive.

If you do a clean install of Windows 7 (format C:, then install), then yes you will lose all the data and programs you have installed on the C: drive. If you are doing an in-place upgrade (like going to Win7 32-bit from Windows Vista 32 bit, or 64-bit to 64-bit) then your shouldn't lose any data. If you are going to W7 from WinXP then you have to do a clean install, regardless. Any clean install will erase any programs or data left on the install drive. Data on other drives will not be affected.

Good Luck!
