The Microsoft Office 2007 Service Pack 3 is the latest update to the Office 2007 suite of programs. It includes hundreds of product, security, stability, and performance fixes. It was initially released in October of 2011 and it will likely be the last service pack update for Microsoft Office 2007.

It is recommended that users update to the latest version Office 2007 as soon as possible. This helps ensure users have the most up-to-date protection from viruses and also improves system performance. It’s very easy to install and it’s completely free.

Some of the SP3 improvements and fixes:

  • Fixes an issue in Excel that caused the program to crash if the file that was currently open in Excel was previewed in file explorer.
  • Fixes another issue with Excel in which the program will crash if an Excel file that uses a newer file format is opened.
  • Office now includes four additional bibliography formats.
  • Fixes an issue with non-unicode characters not displaying correctly in some error messages.

The operating systems that are supported by the SP3 update are the latest Microsoft operating systems and include Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, and Windows 7. However, this update only applies to users that have installed Microsoft Office 2007, which does not come standard in some versions of the Windows operating system. It is a cumulative update, meaning that you do not need to have installed Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2 to update with Service Pack 3 because those updates are also included in Service Pack 3.

There are very few reported issues with SP3. Standard procedure if you a user does encounter an error is to restart the system. However, if users experience further problems with their system after updating to Service Pack 3, they can use the Microsoft Service Pack Uninstall Tool to remove the update and restore their system.
