Can I move Microsoft Office over?

Hi,

I'm about to change my OS to Windows 7, from Vista. I'm going with a clean install, formatting the partition and starting from scratch, because my copy of Vista has updating issues and the clean install is a better bet than an upgrade.

Anyway, I'm hoping I can save Microsoft Office through this whole thing. Is there any way that I can successfully move Office onto an external HD and then back to the partition after the new install? Or can I move it to another partition? I'd actually prefer to have it on my E: Drive rather than the OS partition.

To be clear this is a legal copy of Office. I have the disc, but it's in storage in another state and I don't want to bother my family with a tedious search through an over-packed storage facility if I don't have to.

IN SUMMATION: Can Microsoft Office be moved to another drive and still function properly?

As always, thank you so much for your help. :)

You can't "move" applications from one computer to another. Office will need to be reinstalled.

You can get the Product Key using Magic Jelly Bean's Keyfinder, but the OP still needs the installation media.
