Office 2000 users read this

Subscriber Doug de Hart recently wrote asking did I know what why the many patches for Microsoft Office being distributed via the Microsoft Update service were not installing on his machine. It made no sense to me but Doug finally discovered the answer [1]: Offices Updates are not distributed to users of Office 2000 and earlier. You have to go to the Office Update site [2] to download the updates manually. I suggest you do it now and make sure you have the installation CD handy.
