|[10:30 AM] Office 98 Updated for Mac OS 9 Compatibility
Microsoft has released an update to Office 98 that fixes bigs and adds additional Mac OS 9 compatibility. According to Microsoft:
This patch will deal with two issues concerning Office 98's performance with the new Mac OS 9 --- creating and editing charts in Excel and Graph on Apple's Macintosh OS 9, and printing from PowerPoint to an Epson 740 printer via the USB port. By downloading this updater, you will be able to correct these problems.
In Excel and Graph on Mac OS 9.0 the Format Chart dialog is incorrectly displayed, making it difficult to create and edit charts.
In PowerPoint, printing to the Epson 740 printer via the USB port gives an "out of memory" error with no document printed.
The updater, which updates Excel, PowerPoint, and MS Graph is available for download from Microsoft.
