Well I have a copy of Office XP but never tried to install it on Windows 7.

What you can do is get a program called Open office, it's free, includes all the programs that come with office and it works with documents that were created with office programs like excel and powerpoint.

I tried to install office XP on W7 64. I gave up after three tries, each producing different errors. I also tried various compatibility modes, which caused office to not let me even enter the installation.

This is great if you're a basic user, but it's still very lacking in the more advanced features.

I suppose Office XP is compatible with Windows 7, however, you will not have any Outlook/Office integration.
