Office XP Service Pack 3

  ITmoron 15:03 07 Dec 05

I downloaded this service pack but when it came to instal it asked me to insert the CD ROM which I have lost.

I am currently unable to access my excel files until this situation is resolved.

Can anyone advise me how I can either complete the instalation without the CD or alternatively cancel the update so I can at least get back to my excel files.

System Restore?

Not worked on office xp for a while but with 2003 you have an option to download a full update which doesnt require a cd, check the update site again to see if you have the option.

Following on from pinka's reply. click here and read the section headed "To install SP3 without the original Office XP CD"

Tried that but still asked for disks to be inserted.
