What version of Microsoft Office am I using?

 

Question:  How can I tell what version of Micorsoft Office am I using?

 

Answer: 

For Office 2003, Office 2002, Office XP, Office 2000, Office 97:

Click on the “Help” menu bar item and then on “About”.  This will show you not just what version you are running (i.e. Office 2003) but also what Service Packs have been installed (i.e. SP1).

 

For Office 2007 or above:

Click on the new “Office Button”, choose the relevant “Options” button at the very bottom of the menu, e.g. if you’re in Excel it will be “Excel Options”.  Then click “Resources”, and finally “About” – in fact you can probably see all you need to know at the bottom of the “Resources” screen without having to click “About”.
