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

Strengthened Office Suite Security despite Discontinued Tech Support from Developer

By Ivy Paloma

On Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Although support for Office 2003 has been discontinued since 8th of April this year, I would be glad to discuss with you its 3rd installment of its Service Pack (SP). MS Office 2003 SP 3 makes available the most recent updates to MS Office 2003.

You see, MS Office 2003 SP 3 corresponds to a major development in Office 2003 with regards to its security. It advances and consolidates the Office suite against impending security threats and other attacks. More importantly, it also includes fixes whereas with previous service packs, separate updates were released for Office 2003.

Service Pack 3 includes strength improvements that have been developed due to the result of inputs from users through the Crash Analysis of Microsoft Online in Office 2003. User inputs were also taken from feedbacks in Microsoft Product Support.

Office 2003 behavior has been modified as the result of changes in SP 3. These include the change that disabled certain default features and it also increased computer administrator controls.

Pros

  • It has strengthened the Office Suite security
  • Released updates as a whole instead of separate ones

Cons

  • Technical support has been discontinued

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

This software fixes some errors from the programs of the complete MS Office suite: Word, Excel and PowerPoint as well as Outlook and Access. These corrections were made after collecting the user’s feedback in order to fix the most common and annoying errors.
