Updates for programs not on computer

I am working on a XP computer using Office 2003. We use a web site so that we 
can share a public drive. One person has office 2007 and he others have 2003. 
When I checked for updates on Microsoft it came back with updates for Office 
2003 and 2007 even though 2007 is not installed on my computer. Does anyone 
have an explanation why 2007 updates would appear?

I did install the pack.

Would not have guessed that updates would take that as I have the full 
programs.

Thanks

They didn't.

Likely the updates you are getting include the Compatibility Pack as 
something they need to patch.  You'd have to read the "Applies to" section 
of each of the KB articles for each of the patches you are getting as 
necessary to install.  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/###### <-- subbing 
in the appropriate six (6) numbers.)

Inventory Update. Purchase Order
Hi guys. We are implementing POs to our main product inventory. What I can figure out, is how the inventory is updated using POs. At the moment, all our inventory quantities are on order. How can I change these quantities to real existencies? Daniel: You have to perform receiving transactions on the POs. The receiving transaction updates inventory (both quantity and value) and creates a liability for the goods received. Refer to your GP Help guide as to how to perform these transactions. It's a bit of a lengthy process to go into here. Frank Hamelly MCP-GP, MCT, MVP East Coast Dyn...

Outside programs accessing wrong Outlook account when sending
A program designed by one of our technicians attempts to send out an emergency email to multiple email addresses, using Microsoft Outlook 2002. However, the mail message attempts to send thru our Exchange server, instead of the SMTP it is supposed to be using. The Exchange is not set up to send mail out of our university for security reasons, yet Outlook will not allow me to redirect those mails thru our SMTP server. The SMTP is set up as the default on every user's machine here, but these emails skip right past it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Is the Outlook pr...
