I don't believe there's any native way, as I don't believe SCCM records SIDs in any of its tables. It should be simple enough to run a script to do that job, though and leave the fog of SCCM out of the picture.

Darn...

Our plan was to create an AD Group Ex.: Adobe Reader 9.4 EN and put computer name in it. Create a SCCM Query to gather the computer within this group to create our collection. But if we change the version, we will have to rename the Group but we didn't want to edit the SCCM query with the new name...

What is it you want to do, exactly? Collections can be built by querying AD groups as a "native" function. Collections can also be created in script, a much more flexible option.

How about creating an AD group called 'Adobe Reader' and put the software version information in the comment field only.
Create an SMS collection called 'Adobe Reader 9.4 EN' and populate it from the generic AD group and create an advertisement for the deployment.

When a new version is released create a new SCCM collection for 'Adobe Reader 9.5', populate from the same AD group as before as it's generic for Adobe Reader (you can copy the query from the previous version collection). Update the verison number on the AD group comment.
Disable the advert for '9.4' and advertise '9.5' to the new collection.
Finally update your OSD task sequences for the new package if required.

Hope that makes sense,

Hi,
Can somebody help me with the query.
I want a query that would populate all softwares installed from ADD remove programs from a collection. The collection name is to be variable and user should be prompted for giving collection name.

One, it's poor etiquette - in any forum - to hijack threads.

Two, try posting in the 'SCCM/SMS' forum! :-)
