In addition to posting the error (without which, we can't tell you ANYTHING), you really should be using the latest CentOS if this is a fresh installation. Also, MS Office 2007 is OLD, and the results on the Wine website haven't been updated for the new versions, because of its age. Is there a reason why you need old, unsupported-on-Linux software, when you can use Libreoffice for free???

Wouldn't your users be better off upgrading to something current? And, since Libreoffice runs on Linux, Windows, and Mac, and is FREE, they could all just use that. Since it's free and current, you'd be solving a few problems at once.

And I'm not surprised if there are problems, since (again), Office 2007 is very old. If you use up-to-date software, what happens? And again, support for Office 2007 wasn't good to start with, and hasn't improved. And you still have not told us WHAT the error(s) are that you're getting, what version of wine, etc. Without details, no one can help you.
