    Office 2K Small Business?

    I have this program. It was installed on my PC in Dec. '99. Along with W98SE ver 4.10.2222A. I have just received Service Pack 2 from Microsoft. I understand that there are some "bugs" in this update.

    I have two issues.

    First, is there a "service pack 1" that I need to install first?

    Second, I do not use either Outlook nor Outlook Express nor Power Point, These app's seem to be the focus of the bugs that are being reported upon.

    My intention here is to maintain this system at it's peak, even though I do not utilize ALL of the software available. If it is not in my best interest to install the SP 2, then I will not.

    Please advise.

    Thank you.

    SR1 is a requirement before SP2. Look over the list of fixes in SR1 and if they don't affect the programs you use or if they are bugs you haven't run in to, don't install it.
    Keeping your software up-to-date is a noble cause, but why fix what ain't broken? I'd probably recommend installing it but you may want ot forget about SP2. Even Microsoft only recommends it for corporate users, not SOHO/home users.

    MJ, I thank you for the advice and I will just trash the CD. At least it didn't cost me anything to obtain it. [img]/w3timages/icons/clever.gif[/img]
    I did not obtain the SP 1, so I have no evident problems to deal with in Office. That and I don't venture far into the software. I have little need for it.....yet!

    Thanks again,
