    and NO i am not asking for a serial key........

    I have a bunch of computers that I am putting office on and have a quick question. Is there anyway you can look up the serial on the computer once it
    has been installed? I seemed to have gotten a little confused with computers and serial keys :(

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    Not that I am aware of. However, if you have licenses for five computers and install five times using the same key (and can show the five licenses) you should be fine. I was audited once a few years ago and all they did was get the total systems on the network and then check the total keys purchased. They never looked at each key and nothing reports back to MS on the Mac side.

    Not sure on this one... I guess you will have to try different keys until you find one that works. :(
