I am trying to create an automatic system in SMS to upgrade machines from Office 2003 to Office 2007.  Fairly simple... Create collection of machines without office 2007, create program to push it, advertise on a reoccurring schedule.

Only problem is, I can't for the life of me get a collection that accurately depicts Office 2007.  Anyone have a query statement I could use, or provide guidance?

Easiest method is to use Add/Remove Programs Display name, this is normally the most accurate method for detecting software installations, you could use software inventory, however this method can be very inaccurate.

If you need help with the query feel free to ask.

This works, but I realised my issue is not my query, I am having separate issues with clients reporting in to SMS.

Thanks for the answer.
