    Got it today. Stupid though, it says you can download the full file so that you can install it without the cd. So I downloaded that since I didn't have access to the cd, and when I tried installing it.... it kept asking for the damn cd. STUPID!!!!!

    Dunno didn't say nowt to me about without CD. I have CD's licenced ones of course.

    This set of Office applications will be the last I buy, maybe except frontpage.
    I like frontpage.
    Seems they release a service pack each year for the XP/2002 series. I think this will be the second last, I think it will hit SP4!

    Anyone have any problems with SP3? The "Windows in taskbar" option is Excel doesn't work properly anymore--there's an icon for each open spreadsheet in my taskbar, but only a single Excel window, which contains all the spreadsheets as if the "Windows in taskbar" option is disabled, is displayed.

    Also, Outlook now asks if I want to allow access to my address book whenever I compose an email--is there a way to permanently suppress this prompt (rather than having to do it every new Outlook session)?

    Thanks for any tips you might provide...

    The only XP I have for office is 2002/XP which is from works suite, the excell, outlook and powerpoint is 2000.

    I wasn't talking about unlicenced copies. The MS site says the full file allows admins to install the service pack if/when they dont have the cds to hand.
    I had left my CD in my room and couldn't be bothered to run around the house just to use it for a few secs then put it back again. :p

    Ddin't say you didn't have unlicenced copies.

    Just I remember reading their statement, which said they now go checking for dodgy copies.

    Wasn't accusing nowt. If it seems like I was, I apologise, all i said/mean is as I said I didn't see anything about not needing a cd's. :)
