Read the link Tom Willett provided closer.

Office Home and Student 2007 is a qualifying product for an upgrade to
Office Small Business 2007 as is any Office suite 2000 to 2007 except Office
XP Student and Teacher.

If your intended use of Office 2007 Small Business conforms to the
non-commercial etc use limitations of Office 2007 Home and Student, you may
want to check the Amazon. com prices for stand alone Outlook 2007 and
Publisher 2007. Your Office 2007 Home and Student is also a qualifying
product for the upgrade versions of these stand alone applications.

Note: Office 2007 Small Business and Outlook 2007/Publisher 2007 do not have
the three installation feature of Office 2007 Home and student.

Tom and Peter, Office Home and Student (H & S) does qualify as an upgrade to
any other Office 2007 suite as specified in the URL that Tom gave. The
pertinent part is marked by *****:

"Qualifying Products for Upgrade" - "Microsoft Works 6.0–10; Microsoft Works
suite 2000–2006 or later; *****any 2000–2007 Microsoft Office program or
suite*****; any Microsoft Office XP suite except Office XP Student and
Teacher."

I have used the H & S to upgrade to Office SBE on two different systems.
Same year version upgrading (2007 qualifying for 2007 upgrade) was allowed
with the 2007 suites. It was NOT allowed in 2003 versions or earlier year
versions.

What the "Upgrade not applicable" means in that site on the H & S line is
that H & S is not upgradeable from an earlier version like SBE or Pro would
be. To get H & S you need to purchase a retail or OEM version of H & S.
You have never been able to purchase an upgrade to the
"home/student/teacher" Office products but now MS does allow you to upgrade
out of the "home/student/teacher" line to the commercial line.

Excuse me for my ignorance but it does say on the page for Office Home and Student
that "Upgrade not Applicable"

What you posted as Qualifying products is listed for Office Small Business

Please correct me if I am reading it wrong LVTravel

The OP was talking about using the H & S 2007 to upgrade to SBE 2007. That
would be a permissible upgrade.

I understand that completely but where do you see this in the link that Tom posted.
It say's that Home and Student 2007 is not upgradeable

But when you go down to the various other suites it says that "any 2000–2007
Microsoft Office program or suite except Student and Teacher (S & T) XP"
qualifies for upgrading any of those suites.

Yes, Office H & S itself is not upgradeable to another H & S version (there
is no established upgrade path) but it will quality you for any of the
upgrade versions of other suites. The H & S suite is the replacement for
the old versions S & T. S & T in the XP version is not an upgrade qualifier
but S & T 2003 is a qualifier for any 2007 suite except for H & S or Basic
or Pro Plus or Enterprise. However those versions will qualify to install
an upgrade version of any of the suites that have an upgrade version
available (although I don't know why you would use Pro Plus or Enterprise to
"upgrade" a lesser suite such as SBE or even Pro.)
