I did as indicated above, but it seems to assume that you have the installation media for Office for Mac , which my client can not locate. Is there a location online that you can get the installer from?
There isn't a legal place to retrieve the installer. There isn't a tool to retrieve the Key for the Mac. The instructions Emmanuel gave will allow you to transfer the license to another Mac. You also need to copy the Microsoft programs from the Applications folder. That's the only legal, viable solution right now. One thing you can also try is to just run Migration Assistant and have OS X copy all the system files over.
That should move everything over correctly.

I did copy the applications folder over, per the earlier instructions along with the other files which I assumed included the license.

The client has been using this new Mac for a bit already so I'm assuming I can't confine the migration assistant to moving Office only, is that correct?

If Office is already on the new system, you really only need to copy the 3 license files from the old system to the new one. If it doesn't, then it's possible that Microsoft patched Office and broke that. Newer Office for Mac needs the original Product Key. The license files generated are tied to the system ID, so when you move it, you need to enter a new key to generate a new license file. Are you sure the user has Office ? Office has the rounded letter Icons for the Applications.

The newer Office has solid boxes with the letters in it that look sort of like a notebook opening. Yeah, definitely , and I definitely have the files you mention in the right place. I think his only remedy at this point is to purchase the newest version.
Too bad - on the PC side I've always had great luck with ProduKey to easily retrieve product keys, but haven't found a tool on the Mac side that gets me the Office key. There hasn't been a need for one of those until recently.

There must have been some patch for Office that triggers that now. I remember just copying those files before and it worked. I don't have the old one anymore.
