    Office 2003 SP2 now has newer ADM files for you to add to your Group Policy Objects in AD. For those of you who are not familiar with ADM files, these are the blueprints of GPO Administrative Templates. By adding the Office 2003 SP2 ADM files to any GPO, you will be able to control Office 2003 settings from within GPO, and force these settings on your network clients.

    This update includes Explain Text in the form of two Excel 2003 workbooks that describe the basic intent of the policies listed in the various Administrative Template and OPA files. It supports changes to Office 2003 SP2, with additions and corrections to policies for administrative support of Office 2003 in corporate settings using Active Directory and Group Policy.
