This is a slightly trifling issue but it's just bugging me...

I have a G4 iBook with Office 2004 installed...

somehow I have managed to delete AutoUpdate at some stage

I have searched the original discs, re-installed Office and still no AU...

I can find AU updates on Mactopia but not the original programme...

Anyone have any bright ideas??

Or should I just ignore it and update manually when I remember???

Where's the right-click button?

I ran into the same problem with a bunch of Macs where Office 2004 was "custom" installed. The solution was to go back in and re-do the install, selecting "All". It will over-write your existing Office programs, but will not harm any of your settings or documents. You will then have to do the updates because the versions will go back.
