Microsoft Office Products Software has to be REinstalled, when a new hard drive is used.

.

So, you need to get the Install Media that you used the FIRST time you installed MS office software.

Typically this is in the form of a DVD, but can also just be a download, or a .msi (microsoft install files) file.

.

Did YOU personally buy the software? Was it provided to you from your employer? Did the Office software come WITH the computer at the time you purchased the computer?
