    What is the current feeling regarding the advisability or otherwise of installing Service Pack 3 for Office 2003?

    I have had it installed for some time now and it has caused me no problems.

    I can't imagine any reason for not installing SP3. It has been out for a long time now and includes many fixes.

    I've had it installed on all the PCs for which I'm responsible that have Office 2003 since shortly after it was released. I've had no problems with it. Please note that with a service pack I ALWAYS download the full version. I do not let Windows/Microsoft update try to decide what to install for a service pack on any piece of software. Also, I ALWAYS backup the PC before installation.

    I agree with the above replies, but if you (or your users) have Access 2003, you should follow-up by installing the Access 2003 post-Service Pack 3 hotfix package: December 18, 2007 and the Access 2003 post-Service Pack 3 hotfix package: November 21, 2007. They correct some bugs that were introduced in SP3.
