    Word Macro Security Patch (Office 2K 9.0.3821 SR-1)

    I tried to follow up on the Word Macro security patch mentioned in Woody's Newsletter. When I try to install the patch, I get a message that I don't have SR-1A. I had already installed SR-1a from a CD I got from Microsoft that says Word 2000 SR-1 Part# XO5-26497 (but my understanding is that even tho the CD says SR-1 it is really supposed to be SR-1a). In Both Word and Excel it shows version 9.0.3821 SR-1 in Help-About. Downloading SR-1a to reinstall it that way instead of from the CD, is an iffy proposition here, cause I have a pretty unreliable connection that tends to fail on long downloads. How can I get the patch setup to recognize that I already have SR-1a installed, or is there another CD I could get from Microsoft? Help! Thanks!

    I also tried to install the update to Word with no luck.

    In my case, I keep receiving a message to insert the SR1 CD -- which I didn't have, because I updated via the Internet (which went fine, BTW).

    I then d/l the SR1-a full update, but when extracted it doesn't have the file the Word update is looking for.

    Now what? Any ideas out there?

    Thanks!
