MS Office 2004 11.3.4 Update

I just installed the 11.3.4 Update for Microsoft Office 2004 on my MacBook Pro running OS 10.4.8 and took it for a quick test drive. I opened Entourage, which seems the same, plus Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.

Word 2004 is definitely faster for long docs and when multiple files are accessed on my iDisk. Previously, Word has been very slow and not all that stable on this machine.

Ditto for Excel, which was having major problems with one particular spreadsheet with macros in it. It now seems to be faster with multiple files open.

I only opened two small presentations simultaneously in PowerPoint, but it seemed to work OK.

I'll need to work with it more to see if there are any "gotchas," however.
