Updating Access 97 with Office 97 Service Release 1

Office 97 Service Release 1, which became available in July 1997, consists of he following components:

  • Access Snapshot Technology lets you distribute Access 97 reports as files or e-mail attachments without having to make the source database accessible to users. You create Snapshot (.snp) files in Rich Text Format (RTF) with an Access add-in. Users need the redistributable Snapshot Viewer to display the report.

  • Word 6.0/95 Binary Converter for Word 97 saves documents in native Word 6.0/7.0 .doc format rather than as RTF files. If your documents contain large graphics, using .doc format creates files that are smaller than their RTF equivalents.

  • Outlook 97 patches provide better support for POP3 and SMTP e-mail and improve the handling of electronic forms.

  • Intel MMX support for OfficeArt speeds rendering of JPEG-encoded graphics.

  • Patches fix known bugs and glitches in Office 97 applications.
