Hi Greg,

The two columns are 'Inst Ver' and 'Avail Ver'.

If 'Inst Ver' is empty, the package is not installed. If the package is
available for installation, it appears in the 'Avail Ver' column.

'Avail Ver' shows the latest version that is available **from the installation
sources you've defined.**

When 'Avail Ver' > 'Inst Ver' the text in that row turns blue. This means you
*can* update it to the later version.

When 'Avail Ver' = 'Inst Ver' the text in that row remains black. Nothing to
do in this case.

When 'Inst Ver' > 'Avail Ver' the text in that row turns red.

hth & regards,
