Microsoft Office 2011 14.3.7

Send Article to a Friend

With the release of Office 2011 14.3.7, Microsoft has bashed a number of bugs and closed a security vulnerability in Excel that could allow remote code execution from a specially crafted spreadsheet file. On the Outlook front, the update fixes several issues related to navigation through several panes and using screen reader software. Outlook also now enables you to insert images via the Format menu and adds an item sort order to the View menu. The new release also improves how SharePoint handles opening and checking out files to avoid a crash, plus it prevents a crash in Excel when a spreadsheet contains several drop-down macros. (Free updates via the Office for Mac Web site or through Microsoft AutoUpdate, 113 MB, release notes)
