Microsoft released the March 2020 non-security Microsoft Office updates with improvements and fixes for the Windows Installer (MSI) editions of Office 2013 and Office 2016.
For instance, this month’s updates fix a Microsoft Office 2016 error caused by ADODB.Recordset objects, updates some translations, and an issue affecting Skype for Business users that will not let them stop HID devices from ringing if certain conditions are met.
Today’s Office updates are available for download via Microsoft’s Update service or from the Download Center for manual installation.
Depending on the update you want to install, you might also be required to have previous updates such as a Service Pack installed on their devices, as is the case of the Microsoft Office 2013 update that requires the Microsoft Office 2013 Service Pack 1.
