    When was Word 2002 released? (Word 2002)

    This is something I'm almost embarrassed to ask, but can someone tell me what the official release date for Word 2002 (in Office XP) is?

    I'm trying out some new software, and the tech support person I'm working with insists that Word 2002 is in beta. This comes as a surprise to me...I've been using Word 2002 since early June, when it came as part of Office XP on my new PC. So am I in the dark, or is the tech support person I'm speaking to? Searches of the Mircosoft web suite unfortunately yielded no useful result.

    Hi Arianna,

    Office XP was "officially" released for retail May 31, 2001.

    Although some computer manufacturers had an agreement with MS to release it a little earlier and it was bundled with the PC, there are others that are sending out a coupon for Office XP.

    There are those that may consider it to still be in its Beta stage (as with many Office versions) until the first SR/SP is sent out. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
