MS Office 2000 to 2003 Upgrade Issues - Access 2003 & Publisher Only Install

We currently have all of our PC's with Access 97 and Office 2000 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access) installed. Some of our PC's have a portion of Office 2003 installed. Were trying to upgrade all of our machines from Office 2000 to Office 2003 using the following batch:

\\SERVER\express\Software\Approved\MSOffice2003\setuppro.exe /x PRO11.msi /Q

msiexec.exe /i "\\SERVER\express\Software\Approved\MSOffice2003\PRO11.MSI" TRANSFORMS="\\SERVER\express\Software\Approved\MSOffice2003\Office2003.MST" /qn

 Attached is our Transform

The problem is, when we run the batch file, Access 97, 2000 stays (which we want), but the computer that don't have the porition of 2003 installed it only installs Access 2003 & Publisher 2003.

Why does Access 2003 & Publisher 2003 only install - when the transform says to install everything (except Outlook)

Any ideas

How was the transform generated.  I would guess that something is missing and this is causing an upgrade of existing apps rather than an upgrade of the whole suite.
