Microsoft has released Query X for Mac OS X.

The software lets users import data from databases into Excel X via Open Database Connectivity (ODBC). Users need to have the latest Office v.X update and a compatible ODBC driver installed.

The tool can create new queries or refresh existing queries created in other versions of Excel, including Excel 98, Excel 2001, and Excel for Windows.

This is a 1.5MB download available from the company's Mactopia Web site.

Microsoft has also released an updater for Word and Entourage 2001, the SSL Security updater (1.3MB download).

This addresses a vulnerability that could let attackers with valid security certificates issue invalid certificates that would appear valid. It also fixes an issue in Word's field codes that attackers could use to steal information from Macs.
