*ADDLOCAL: Installation of features from software from local *ADDSOURCE: Installation of features from source,

MSDN will make it clear for you, as indeed for such much else connected with Windows Installer. I'd say that a day or two spent browsing there would be productive.

I think,
for e.g. If u install microsoft office 2003 with ADDLOCAL property, then after installation whenever we have to change it's features, or repair, or advertisement it refers local source copy.
And if u install microsoft office 2003 with ADDSOURCE property, then after installation whenever we have to change it's features, or repair, or advertisement it refers network source copy. I am not sure...

Not quite. MSDN says (clearly enough to me, but...):ADDSOURCE Property
The value of the ADDSOURCE property is a list of features that are delimited by commas, and are to be installed to run from the source.
It's the difference between selecting 'Run from local hard drive' or 'Run from source' when selecting features in the UI. ADDLOCAL causes the files to be installed locally, ADDSOURCE causes them to be run from the source media.
