I have a microsoft office installed on two computers, both report they are SP3 but have different build numbers

11.8307.8221 and 11.8169.8172 (you can see the later identified as SP3 here , which is confirmed in the about box)

My question is , how do I find out why the versions are different even though they are both reporting SP3.

What could I download to move 11.8169.8172 to 11.8307.8221? (I've tried downloading SP3 for Office again on the machine with 11.8169.8172 but during installation I am told I have the latest version)

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Use Microsoft Update to obtain any patches released after SP3, even though they are both SP3, there may be some patches missing on one of them.
