MS posts one-stop Office patch panacea

Microsoft Corp. has posted a patch that combines all of the available fixes for Office 97.

The Service Release patch alleviates several glitches that have made it hard to share documents written on Microsoft's Word 97 with those using older word processing programs, such as Word 6.0 and Word95. It also fixes some e-mail problems found in Office 97. The patch is mainly targeted at large corporate users.
