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...

To be quite honest I never use excell so can't help you!

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. :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
