Major Developments Including Stabilized Security Featured in Office 2003 3rd Service Pack

By Reinalei Jamir

On Wednesday, June 18, 2014

Thankfully, Microsoft had the common sense to release the 3rd Service Pack of MS Office 2003 as a merged upgrade. Compared to its predecessors, Office 2003 upgrades were released individually which required me to download them separately as well. Such a chore!

Major developments were included in MS Office 2003 SP 3. Security for one, which is the most important for me, has been greatly improved. Office 2003 has been added with a shield that can block threats and attacks common with office suites. Aside from the security improvements, other performance enhancements and advancements were included, while certain default items were removed. More admin control was enabled, however.

Unfortunately though, Office 2003 is no longer provided with a technical support by Microsoft. Before this, they were able to gather user feedback to improve their famous office suite. This has proven how important inputs from users are. Entries in the Microsoft’s Crash Analysis Report, which were available through MS Product Support and MS Online, provided the valuable feedback and contributions.

Pros

  • Upgrade provided in one release
  • Security is stabilized and better

Cons

  • No longer provided with a technical support

SECURE YOUR WORKSHEETS AND DATA USING THE SECURE MICROSOFT OFFICE 2003 SERVICE PACK 3

By Dann Kamau

On Wednesday, October 22, 2014

The way office operations are carried out greatly evolutionised from way back in 1988 when Microsoft first developed the Microsoft office suite of applications. Most of office operations or rather desktop tasks before that were being carried out manually e.g documents write-ups, letters, financial calculations, presentation materials etc.

Microsoft office is an office suite of desktop applications. The first set of applications included Microsoft Word for words processing, Microsoft Excel for spreadsheets which soon outsold the Lotus 123 program and Microsoft Powerpoint for presentation materials. Special features were included in the suite to help the user carry out tasks such as spellchecks, computation formulas, underlines etc.

Over the years Microsoft office has been modified to newer versions with other added applications. Microsoft has also modified existing features and created newer ones. Other applications added includes- Microsoft Access- a data management system, Microsoft Outlook-a personal information management application, Microsoft One Note- a freeware note taking program, Microsoft Publisher-for designing brochures, labels, cards etc, Microsoft Project-for project management and track of events, Microsoft Visio-for diagrams and flow charts and Microsoft SharePoint-for share point sites.

The current versions are Version 2013 for windows and Version 2011 for OS X.

Pros

  • Reduction of manual human labour
  • More organized and neater offices

Cons

  • Reduction of human numbers in offices thus less jobs
