I know it's confusing but this is the Microsoft Update Catalog newsgroup
which deals with requests and feedback for the MU Catalog, not Windows
updating issues. The Windows Update newsgroup is here:
Are you referring to the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word,
Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats ?
If yes, then the updates for Office 2007 are to be expected and yes,
Office 2003 will be offered it's own updates if the system has been
opted into the Microsoft Update site. It 'sounds' like it has.
" By installing the Compatibility Pack in addition to Microsoft Office
2000, Office XP, or Office 2003, you will be able to open, edit, and
save files using the file formats new to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007. "
