MS Security Patch - List of security patches, what previous patches they replaced and what patch replaced it

Posted on 2011-10-04

I'm looking for some help.  I am doing an analysis on MS Office security patches starting in 2006 and I am looking for some help.  I need to determine all MS Office security patches since 2006, then determine the previous security patches it replaced (if any), and then what newer security patches replaced it (if any).  
Example (spreadsheet format):
Patch                                          || Replaces                     || Replaced By
MS Word MS08-042 KB954463 || MS08-026 KB950243 || MS08-072 KB956329

First off, I know you are wondering why I need to know this...I work in a very regulated industry...and this has not been my favorite project.  The manual way of looking through all the MS patches for 5 years is time consuming.  I've searched for a list or spreadsheet with this information with no luck.  I'm guessing there is something out there, but I need help finding it.  If anyone could point me to some sort of MS Patch replacement matrix I would appreciate it.

    This list also provides patches which have been superseded.

    May not be the generated list but thought this site is useful as central collated kb for targeted patches on the affected services and appl.

    Although this information wasn't what I was looking for, the webpage you gave me had some good information.  Since no one else had anything, thank you breadtan.
