office 2000 upgrade

  KrisBall 16:37 12 Jul 2006

I have office 2000I have recently been prompted to update, however, when I have tried, I am told it is no longer supported.
I have looked at perhaps purchasing office 2003, hoever, as a pensioner, it is way, way out of my reach. Any ideas??

I am running Microsoft Office 2000 and find that it updates correctly, in fact, I have updated this afternoon.
Are you using the Microsoft Office 2000 update site?

I have Office 2000. It does everything I want it to do. The old saying: "If it aint broke, don't fix it" comes to mind.

Stick with Office 2K. As a user of Office 2K Premium, Open Office and Ability Office, I can confirm that even a 6+ year old MS product trounces the rest of them.

RE updates. I do sometimes have trouble with the update system, specifically their failure to install.

Wanted to add: only a problem when re-installing, as there hasn't been very much for 2K for quite a long time. Where full versions are available, I download them and keep them on CD.
