    I know this is kind of pointless since i'm running parallels with Windows 7 running along side of OS X but is it possible to run microsoft office "for mac" inside windows 7.

    For example I swipe over to the desktop that has windows 7 up and running. I'm wanting to record some information "data" from this windows program but I don't want to swipe back and forth from viewing the data and then back to the document editor to type it down. Hope I'm making it clear.

    I believe Parallels has some sort of 'unified' mode where you can run your OS X and Windows Apps together in the OS X interface.

    Okay, you are wanting to be in a Windows 7 session, with Mac Office running on top in a window?

    I think it is possible in Parallels 9 but I haven't tried it. It may require Coherence mode for that.
