I have four computers and for each one I have a license key for Office 2007 Professional.

I want to format my PC but I'm afraid that if I do, I won't know which key to re-install!

Is there any way to find out which key I'm currently using for Office 2007 Professional? I use Windows XP and Windows Vista.

There is a tool called "Magic Jelly Bean - KeyFinder" for which the free edition will do the job for you, and even provide a printed report as well as letting you save the information in an ASCII text file:

The Super User Blog covered this recently—comparing several tools.

and also referenced Magical Jelly Bean Key Finder.

while the SU blog is off course excellent, I'd add a short list of the tools mentioned in the blog post, so users get an idea what is in that post. –  Ivo Flipse May 9 '11 at 10:38
@Ivo: Good point... –  Richard May 9 '11 at 12:14
The Product Key Finder is the only one of these that will extract the Office key for free –  SSumner Aug 1 '12 at 3:20
