Update Office for Mac:

Latest Update News!

Before Installing: Quit all applications that are running because they might interfere with installation. Easy way: Log out. When you log in, hold down the Shift key to disable all startup items including the hidden ones.

Some users have found the need to apply the Apple combo updater to fix problems after MS updates as well as Apple updates.

Updates do not include an uninstall feature. To restore your application to its original state, delete it from your hard disk, reinstall Office from your original installation disk, and then install ALL updates.

Tip: Archive (zip) your Office folder prior to updating so you can easily revert to the archive copy if needed.

After updating, restart your computer!
