Office 97 Service Release 1
If you're running Office 97, you might be interested in Microsoft's Service Release 1. The Office SR-1 is an update to Office 97 designed primarily for large organizations to address migration issues. The main benefit of the Office SR-1 is that it combines Office 97 product updates into one consolidated patch. The most significant component of the Office SR-1 is the new Word 6.0/95 Binary Converter for Word 97. Other components include several performance enhancements for the Outlook™ 97 desktop information manager and updated file viewers, converters and filters.

The Office SR-1 can be downloaded from Microsoft at: http://www.microsoft.com/Office/Office97/ServiceRelease/
