Nope .. Office 2004 key is used during the installation but in NOT visible on the network in any way, nor is there a file you can decode..  Others have asked this question before... and the answer is always the same

The only option is to Use the Office Remove Tool  (located on the install CD) to de-serialise office and then re-enter the serial on each Mac .. writing down  or recording which Mac has which serial manually!!
