    Default Microsoft Office Service Pack 3 ?

    I use an old version of Word (2002).

    Recently, I have needed to download docx formats. Word 2 offers to download a converter.

    But the Microsoft site also recommended downloading Service Pack 3.

    My question is 'What does Service Pack 3 do'?

    Is it a good idea to install it?

    Thanks

    It is always a good idea to install all the latest updates and service packs, so I would suggest you install Office SP3 too. You could get more details here: Description of Microsoft Office XP Service Pack 3

    Thanks for responding.

    I understnd that there is no such thing as sp3 for Vista, my operating system.

    So I assume that I should not try to install this pack.

    Your computer is asking you to install SP3 for what? Windows or Office? Windows Vista does not have SP3. But Office XP does have one, so reconfirm and decide accordingly - and in any case make sure that you are downloading it from the Microsoft site.
