    Excel98/PowerPoint 98 MS01-050 (Office 98)

    The Microsoft Security Bulletin MS01-050 (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sec...n/MS01-050.asp) says that to verify the installation of the Excel 98 and PowerPoint 98 patch that the "Get Info" selection will show "9.0.1 (3618)". When I install the patch the Get Info section says "8.0 (9119)" for both Excel 98 and PowerPoint 98. Is the TechNet page incorrect? Is the "8.0 (9119) correct?

    Thanks in advance.

    Are you sure the source you quote is not just for Windows and Office 2000 users. As Office 98 was only issued for the Apple Mac, you probably need to consult a different source. Office 2000 for Windows has a version number 9 so that would not apply to previous versions. Office 98 for the Mac was based on Office 97 for Windows and hence is probably version 8, so the Get Info data may be correct.

    The source I'm quoting is the Microsoft Security Bullentin. We use Office 98 on our Macintosh systems. The version numbers for the components are 8.0. Thats why the statement in the Security Bulletin doesn't make sense. If it's version 9.0 that implies Office 2000 for Windows. The verification works fine for Excel 2002/PowerPoint 2002. I don't have Office 2000 to test right now but there have been some posts talking about discrepancies there too.
