Extremely new with SCCM 2007, attempting to run a driver update to multiple computers.  However we are using an inventory list (Excel sheet) to determine the exact model.  I am wondering if there is a way to add multiple system resource (Resource class) name (Attribute name) values using the Direct Membership Rule Wizard?  From my experience it only allows me to enter one name or a wild card (%) however I am unable to determine the model number this way.

I think I may have figured this out, it involves a query similar to this.

select *
from   SMS_R_System
where  SMS_R_System.Name in (
                             "Client1",
                             "Client2",
                             "Client3",
                             "Client4"
                            )

I just put the workstation names in the "_",

You can do a direct rule like you did or you can do a dynamic collection based on inventory. For example, the computer model will usually be found on hardware inventory and the old driver has name xxxxx.dll and a version n.nn.nnn. You combine these three pieces of information with AND and you propably will get the required dynamic collection of computers of spcific model and old driver.

It solved the issue however given my lack of SCCM knowledge was sufficient.
