    Patches Won't Install on Excel 97 SR2

    I have Excel 97 SR2 and the About confirms it. I wish to apply several of the patches which came out after SR2. However, if I try to install Xl8p6pkg or Xl8p8pkg then I get an error message stating that the patch has failed because I do not have Excel 97 SR2 on this computer.

    Note: The customized installation of Excel 97 SR2 is not in
    C:Program FilesMicrosoft Office
    but instead in
    E:MicrosoftMicrosoft Office

    Okay. I think I'm getting the error because a later patch, Xl8p9pkg, had already been applied before I attempted Xl8p6pkg and Xl8p8pkg. I found that this later patch includes all previously numbered ones.
