First, many thanks for information on how to clear the update history, and reset update, etc. It worked perfectly so is now saved for future use. BUT, I now have tried to install those six security updates for Office 2003 shown on my original attachment. They appear to download properly but the installation of each failed due to a 646 error. Troubleshooting that did no good. I also tried one-at-a-time, and that failed also for the same reason.
Isn't there a method of 'repairing' my Office 2003 installation? Should I try that and then try the updates again, or what do you suggest at this point? Very much appreciated!! Dick
