Hi All,

Many, many thanks to all of you who responded to my "upgrade from
Word95 to Word97?" posting. Most of your responses were in favor of

I have Small Business Edition Office 97 bundled on a new Dell PC.
Everyone I communicated with (a couple dozen) about Word 97, including
about 7 support folks from Dell, said I need the SR-1 patch. So, last
night I downloaded the SR-1 patch (sr1off97.exe) from MS, saved it to
hard disk, double clicked on sr1off97.exe, it started to execute, and
then a dialog with two horizontal window panes came up.

The top pane listed three items that SR-1 had determined that need the
patch: EXCEL, OUTLOOK, and Support Files. The bottom pane listed the
item that SR-1 had determined to NOT need the patch (you guessed it):
WORD. Is this a common occurrence? I continued on, ran the patch, and
it told me it was "successful".

Was the patch installed? Is there a way to know if the patch
installed properly and updated the appropriate items in Word 97? What
was fixed or changed, and how do I know if anything actually happened
(besides me spending a heck of a lot of time on this)? Was it
operator error on my part? What actually happened?

Any help or direction is greatly appreciated. Thank you all very much
for your time.
