(Reuters) - Microsoft Corp's chief financial officer said on Thursday that the company has "no further update" on its search for a new CEO to replace Steve Ballmer, who last month announced plans to retire within a year.

Amy Hood made the remark as she introduced a series of presentations to Wall Street analysts at Microsoft's campus close to Seattle, which was broadcast on the Web.
