April 2, 2019, update for Word 2016 (KB4462240)

This article describes update 4462240 for Microsoft Word 2016 that was released on April 2, 2019.

Be aware that the update in the Microsoft Download Center applies to the Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2016. It doesn't apply to the Office 2016 Click-to-Run editions, such as Microsoft Office 365 Home (see What version of Office am I using?).

This update contains the following improvements and fixes:

  • This update adds support for future Japanese era date formats in Word 2016.

    Note This update does not include support for Japanese era date formats in the postcard design wizard in Word 2016. To get this support, install update 4464536.

  • Adds translations for the error message when playing online videos is disabled by Administrator through Group Policy update.

    Note To enable this improvement, you have to install 4462241 together with this update.
