Service Pack 3

When I run the upsize wizard to create an .ADP file from
an MS Access DB I get the error "Overflow". I have
searched microsoft and found that Service Pack 3 is
supposed to fix this error.

I down loaded Service Pack 3, but when I start to run the
executable file I get the error "This update cannot be
applied".

So I went to the section of the microsoft website that
detects what down loads my computer needs installed. It
told me my computer is up to date and recommended no down
loads.

What should I do, why will SP 3 not run?

If anyone has any ideas let me know.

Thank you,

T.J.

I have Office 2000 Prtemium installed and update to service pack 1a with no
problem. Then I need to update using service pack 3. It download ok then
when installing (with the cd in the drive) it shows as installation
unsuccessful. I tried this many times with no success.

What's the problem? I'm running Windows XP prof.

Any help appreciated.

Hi, Werner,

A couple of things to check:

Are you using the client only update (as opposed to the administrative
update)?

Have you already applied SP-2?

Have you checked the setup log file to see where it might be failing?

Hi,

I have installed sp2. It was not easy to find.

I don't know where to find the log you mention. It's not in the office
directory.

What is the difference between the client only or the administrative file. I
don't have users on my machine. Every one has administrative rights.

Thanks Susan. I finally got it om. I downloaded it directly and then ran it
from a temp directory. It worked fine.

There seems to be something wrong with the update route.

I have just recently installed service pack 3 onto my Microsoft Office 2000. I have noticed that Microsoft word will no longer load. It seems that every time i launch it, the microsoft word box comes onto my screen and crashes my computer. The mouse can still be moved while nothing esle happens. I have testing other programs such as Excel and Powerpoint which both work it is just that Word refuses to launch upon multiple attemps. If anyone would be able to help me launch it without crashing my computer it would be great.

By the way I am using Micrsofot Millenium Edition.

Do the other office programs work?
Your serial number doesn't start with GC6J3, does it?

You can run it from Help in any Office program or you can run it from
Start->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs. Highlight Office and select
change. Use the maintenance/repair option.
