 Upgrading from Win-version to Mac-version to MS Office

I tried my best to find this answer at the MS Office web site, but I simply
had to no luck.  Perhaps someone in this group knows the answer...

My family has chosen to switch to a new PowerMacintosh rather than upgrade
our old PC.  We currently own a full version of MS Office97 for the PC.
We're trying to determine if, in the least, we can purchase an *upgrade
version* of MS Office for the Macintosh rather than purchasing the *full
version* of MS Office for the Macintosh.  Sadly, I can't believe that MS
would simply allow us to switch to Mac version without any fee.  But, maybe
this upgrade feature could work (it's certainly cheaper).

MS upgrade software typically checks your computer (such as the hard drive
or CD-ROM) for an old version of the software before the upgrade proceeds.
Has anyone (miraculously) ever tried to upgrade a Mac version of MS software
using the Windows version as the "old version" of the software?  Although my
experience with a Mac is limited, I understand that an Mac can read DOS
compatible disks.  With that in mind, it seems to me that using the Windows
version as the "old version" of the software should work.

I know this question is really a shot in the dark, however, someone out
there may hold the answer.  Please respond by e-mail rather than by simply
reposting to this newsgroup (I don't read this groups posts very often).

Thanks in advance,
