Known issues that you may experience when you install Office 2007 SP2...
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968173

You receive an error message when you try to apply any of the 2007 Office
service packs on a computer that is running WinXP SP2 [or SP3]

Thanks for the help, I tried these solutions and I still get an error that
the database is corrupted.

Also I am running Vista.

Re: error code 80246007

Is this the MSKB where you saw instructions to run a .bat to resolve the
error: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/958042

If so, then suggest you rename DataStore.edb by first stopping the
update service and BITS, if it's been started.
Here's what Repair.bat should look like -

net stop wuauserv
net stop bits
cd %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore
ren DataStore.edb DataStore.edb.old
ren Download Download.old
net start wuauserv
net start bits

DataStore.edb is the database that the error refers to, Judy, despite
what the KB article states. It can be corrupted by antivirus software
scanning it while it's locked [ in use ].
Reboot after running the .bat file and see if the system can update now.

To avoid this issue in the future, see this:

Re: error code 80246007

Correction:


net stop wuauserv
net stop bits
cd %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore
ren DataStore.edb DataStore.edb.old
cd %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\
ren Download Download.old
net start wuauserv
net start bits

Without changing directories, cd %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\,
the renaming of the Download subfolder will fail.
