SUMMARY

Microsoft has released an update to Microsoft Word 2002. This update includes improvements that were developed as a direct result of customer error reports. This update also prevents Word from running macros without warning because the user has opened a document that has been maliciously modified. Once you have installed this update, you will still be able to use templates, macros in templates, or RTF documents with macros.

This article describes how to download and install the Word 2002 Update: June 21, 2001.

NOTE: This Public Update is part of the Microsoft Office XP Service Pack 1 (SP-1), but for your convenience the Public Update also is available individually, as described in the "More Information" section of this article.
