Office XP / 2002
Things that break
- You can't run XP on Windows 95. You need at least Windows '98.
- Total Access Analyser
2000 will install but the Access Add-In does not work - probably wrong
Things that improve
- In Office '97, I've seen and heard so many people grizzle about Mr.
Paperclip, the default Office Assistant. Office Assistants are not always the
most helpful and can be downright irritating. However, there are much more
pleasant buddies than Mr. Paperclip. Get Office
97 Assistant- Kairu the Dolphin or Office
97 Assistant- F1 the Robot - they're much more fun.
- Get Office SR-1 and then SR-2. You need to apply them in sequence. Without
SR-2, Excel recalcs on various operations is buggy.
