I've mentioned this in an other post previoulsy, though after receiving my shiny new suite I thought it deserved it's very own.

Right, assuming that your workplace use Microsoft office on a group/enterprise licence, it's highly likely that they also sign upto sofware assurnace through MS. If this is the case, your employer has the option, at no extra cost to activate a couple of benefits packages to be made availabe to employees. One of the benefits being the HUP (Home User Programme).

The HUP is the programme i used to order my copy it arrived 5 days later. I ordered the aformentioned suite, though did notice that they had Visio etc amongst others. I do use visio, though at present it has no value for me at home.

One of the other programmes is the EPP (Employee Purchase Programme) This gives considerable discount on microsoft products i.e. Mice, Webcams.....XBOX games!!! I've asked in work about this benefit being activated. In short they will look into. Though it's unlikley. Employees using new software at home is a bonus, me phoning in sick because COD4 has me hooked is a different matter!

So go ask see what's waiting to be enabled and put on offer!

PS I got the 17.92 back in expenses! Oh and they do have the Mac versions!

I tried to get this as my wife works for the NHS.

It worked all the way up to when I hit the order link and it came up saying that they could not validate her eligibility even thought the order link was on the same email that said she had been verified as eligible.

Useless.

She needs to do this through her email at work....details should be available from her Trusts intranet site or HR dept.

Use OpenOffice instead for free!

http://download.openoffice.org/

Yes I know it's been posted/mentioned many times before but if 1 more person starts using it by reading this then it's worth it!

Don't pay for bloated Microsoft software and use this instead! :thumbsup:

Seeing as this is for employees of companies using MS products you may run into compatibility issues with OpenOffice. OpenOffice will be more viable when MS start supporting open standards for documents!

BTW - HUP is supposed to be removed from Home PC's if you leave the company you were working for at timne of purchase.

Yes, you get an email back once you have entered your nhs email and received the code. Pop the code into the website and they confirm eligibility and send a email with the order link. The email with the link says

"Welcome to the Microsoft Home Use Program. Through an arrangement
between Microsoft and your employer, you are eligible to order a
licensed copy of select Microsoft Office desktop programs you use at
work to install and use on a home computer."

Click the link and

"We apologize but we are unable to validate your authorization information at this time. Please try again later. If this problem persists,contact your employer's Software Assurance Benefits Administrator."

Everytime. Who the administrators is, is anyones guess.

Open Office, tried it didn't like. i suppose it's down to personal opinion.

I do have it on good authority that in the next autumn/ish update, microsoft are to start supporting open formats.

If they started paying people to use Open Office I’d still pass. :w00t: Each to their own.

Nice deal on Office although after demoing Office 2007 I found Word rather irritating in places so I’ll stick with 2003 which is cheap for a 3 PC home license.

Can you please post more details as to how to do this as managed to find the proper URL but it is asking for a program code. How do you find this out?

Many thanks

Agharta, I found 2007 irritating at first.

I think its down to the "ribbon" menus. Once you get used to it, it is actually an improvment, a massive one infact.

2003, still my main choice till work roll out 2007, 3rd quarter. Does the job, aswell as 2007, just the latter has some sweet improvments. Especiaally excel, and the new one note title, is suprisingly useful!
