    I think the best bet would be Microsoft Office 2003. Install the latest service pack (I think it's SP3 for Office 2003), and then be sure to add the Microsoft Office 2007 Compatibility Update (so you can use DOCX and XLSX files.)

    Microsoft Office 2000 and XP/2002 would both work, but I thin 2003 has the edge here.
    :)

    I believe you can reach up to version 2007 on Windows XP, although 2003 is better.

    Actually Office 2010 can be used as well. We used it at my former workplace.

    I would heartily recommend Office 2003, or even better, OpenOffice.org 3.3, over the modern Office - I still cannot be used the ribbons!
