Current Cumulative Updates for Office – Q1 2014


As I mentioned in the Current Cumulative Updates for Office – Q3 2012 post, each quarter I will post information on the latest updates for the Office for Windows and Office for Macintosh products.

The information below is being provided regarding the most currently available updates available for the supported Windows and Macintosh versions of Office as of January 2, 2014.

As a reminder on why I'm providing this information and how it should be used, please see my Keeping Up with Office Updates post which discusses the cumulative updates for Office (and Outlook in particular) that companies need to be aware of and push out to their users. 

Office for Windows

Office 2013

Office 2010

Office 2007

Office 2003

  • Current Service Pack Level: Office 2003 SP3
  • Latest cumulative Update: June 2010 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2270183)
  • No new cumulative updates will be released as Office 2003 is out of mainstream support.  Extended support will end on April 8, 2014.

Note: Each of the KB articles includes the list/links for all the Office products (Word, Excel, Outlook, etc).  Most of you focus on Outlook and that’s the only ones required and is also provided separately but I wanted to provide the larger “Office” list in case you want it.

As a reminder, Microsoft Update does *NOT* make the cumulative updates available to users.  These have to be downloaded and either installed independently or deployed using tools such as WSUS, SCCM, etc. 

Office for Macintosh

Office 2011

  • Current Service Pack Level: Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 SP3 (released January 2013)
  • Note: Office for Mac 2011 SP2 support ends April 8, 2014
  • Note: Office for Mac 2011 SP1 support ended July 9, 2013
  • Office for Mac 2011 support ends on January 12, 2016
  • Latest cumulative Update: November 2013 – 14.3.9 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2902808)

Office 2008

  • Current Service Pack Level: Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac SP2 (released October 2009)
  • Office 2008 for Mac support ended on April 9, 2013
  • Latest cumulative Update: March 2013 – 12.3.6 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2817449)

Note: Each of the KB articles includes the link for downloading the package which updates ALL Office Products…there are not separate updates for each of the various components of Office as there is with the Windows releases.

    I have two questions I’ll post separately.
    First, why do multiple updates in a single cumulative cycle update the same files? Example in Dec. 13 Outlook 2010. 2849991 and 2849973 both include Outlook-x-none.msp with the same size and creation date, which presumably fixes the same thing. 2849991 has an additional file to fix additional items. Question is, why does 2849973 exist if 2849991 fixes the same things? And why in article for 2849991 does it not list the fixes listed in the 2849973 article if it does in fact fix them?

    Second, comparing October 2013 cumulative to December 2013 cumulative Excel 2010. In 2825802 (Oct. ’13) it updates Graph-x-none.msp. No Dec. ’13 update lists including Graph-x-none.msp. Am I correct in saying if I took Office 2010 RTM, installed SP2, then all the cumulative updates from Dec. ’13, I would not have some of the fixes in 2825802? That doesn’t sound “cumulative” to me.

    I also noticed that when I installed the "Cumulative Updates" that all the "Recommend Updates" in Microsoft Update are still required (includes both security and non-security updates). Can you clarify why these are called "Cumulative".
