Reinstall office. If you had deleted it, and its now no where to be found (hint did you use spotlight to search for it), then your only option is to reinstall MS Office.

Edit:
Do you have a Time Machine backup? If so, then you can restore that back, if not, perhaps this is a good time to enable that feature.

Get the Office disk, insert it into the CD drive and run the installer.

If you bought it online like from Amazon or Microsoft, log on there and redownload it

sounds terrible but i have just put in the office disc and it just makes a vibration noise every now and then with nothing changing on the screen.
I then tried a different disc and it was fine.

whats going on with this?

Is this an older version of Office? If so and you can afford it, it might be a good time to upgrade. Just find the number for MS support and call, they will take care of the upgrade while you watch.
