Thanks to Michael Tsang Kwong Yiu for the tip: Microsoft is planning to release the second service pack for Office 97, known as SR-2, this summer via the Office Web site. Office 97 SR-2 will be a free update to Office 97, consisting of a series of recent fixes, and designed to make it even easier for customers to deploy Office 97. SR-2 will include currently available downloads such as the Microsoft Excel 97 for Windows Auto-Recalculation Patch, as well as a Microsoft PowerPoint 97 file that correctly formats dates when saving presentations to PowerPoint 4.0. SR-2 will not be a re-release of Office 97, nor will it include any new product features.
