A service pack can be incremental, which means it only contains the updates that were not present in the previous service packs or, more commonly, cumulative, which means it includes the contents of all its predecessors. In the case of Microsoft's product, incremental updates are usually called service release. For example, Office 2000 must be upgraded to service release 1 (SR1) before one can install SP2.

Normally, for a given program, its service packs are either all incremental or all cumulative. For this reason the two adjectives are often referred to the entire set of a program's service packs, as, for instance, in the sentence Microsoft Windows service packs are cumulative.
