Transfer MS Office files to new iMac
I've just ordered a new iMac with MS Office home user. When I get my new iMac I was planning on using migration assistant to bring everything over. My understanding is I will be prompted to do this at start up. My question is if I do this before I install MSOffice will it recognise the files or not? Am I better to skip over, install MS Office first and then bring over the files?

I don't see why it wouldn't bring the files over. You just won't have any way to open them until you install MS Office (or another office suite).
