Thanks to everyone who wrote in to tell me about the re-release of Office 97 Service Release 2 (SR-2), which is now available from the Microsoft Office Update site. SR-2 was released, and then pulled, by Microsoft within the past month because of a problem with the installation program. The company says that problem has been fixed.

For more information about Office 97 SR-2, please visit the Service Release 2 Fact Sheet.

Microsoft expects to finish the next major revision of its Office suite, Office 2000, in the first quarter of 1999
