Word is definitely required and an older version such as Word 97 probably won't work (it didn't for me). I downloaded the 60-day trial version of Office 2007 Home & Student, which worked quite nicely with BD. I'm a WordPerfect user myself, so I hate having to install Word too. I know expecting WordPerfect to be an acceptable substitute is absurd - the two programs have a very different philosophy/approach to word processing - but I really think programmers could at least design to use OpenOffice instead of Word. After all, Word is not part of a default Windows OS install. Besides, if they used OpenOffice as a resource, I would think that it would be a lot easier to port across to other operating systems, like Mac OS X & Linux.
