APPLIES TO

This article was previously published under Q252885

SYMPTOMS

When you look at your version number for a Microsoft Office 2000 program that is listed in the "Applies To" section of this article, the version number may be different from the version that is included with Microsoft Office 2000, which is version 2720 (9.0.2720).

CAUSE

This situation occurs if one of the following is true:

  • You have installed a program that has a newer version of the Mso9.dll file. -or-


  • You applied an update that modified or replaced the Mso9.dll file.


MORE INFORMATION

The About Microsoft program name box (on the Help menu) displays the following information:

  • Program Name
  • Program Version


The version number is displayed as a six-digit number separated by periods, x.x.xxxx. For example, Access 2000 may display the version number as:

9.0.2720


The last four digits of the version number are from the Mso9.dll file. This four-digit number represents the version of the Mso9.dll file that is installed on your system. Access 2000, Excel 2000, and Word 2000 obtain these numbers from the Mso9.dll file.

The last four digits of the version number may vary, depending on which version of the Mso9.dll file is installed on your system. Version 2720 of the Mso9.dll file is included with Microsoft Office 2000. Your version may vary, depending on whether you installed a product that has a newer version of the file or you applied an update that modified or replaced the file.
