SUMMARY

This article describes the Microsoft Office Excel 2007 issues that are fixed in the hotfix package that is dated October 25, 2011.

INTRODUCTION

Issue that this hotfix package fixes

  • Consider the following scenario:
    • The ForceShellExecute registry entry is enabled in Windows.

      Note The ForceShellExecute registry entry is in the following registry key:
      32bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Common\Internet  \
      DWORD: ForceShellExecute Value: 00000001 

      64bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Common\Internet
      DWORD: ForceShellExecute Value: 00000001
      - You click on a hyperlink in an Excel 2007 workbook that links to another workbook.
    In this scenario, the linked workbook does not open. Additionally, the pointer remains as a busy pointer.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You have an Excel 2007 workbook that contains a shape. The shape references another workbook.
    • You try to copy the shape to another workbook.
    In this scenario, Excel 2007 crashes.
  • When you print an Excel workbook in Excel 2007, the data in the workbook starts to be printed on the second page of the printout. Additionally, the columns on the second page are truncated.

    This issue occurs when the following conditions are true:
    • The paper size is set to A4 or Letter.
    • A "fit to page" option is selected.
    • The printout is more than one page and includes the title.
    • The printer supports scaling.
  • Assume that you have a workbook on a UNC share of a server. This workbook contains a link to another workbook on the same server. For example, the link contains the following path:
    \\server\share\folder\test
    However, after you install KB2587505 and then open the workbook that contains the link in Excel 2007, the path of the link is loaded incorrectly. For example, the path that the link contains is loaded as the following:
    \\server\share\share\folder\test
    Therefore, the link is broken.

  • When you try to create a list by importing an Excel 2007 workbook to a Microsoft Office SharePoint site, you receive the following error message in Excel 2007, and the import operation fails:
    Method 'Post' of object 'IOWSPostData' failed
    This issue occurs when the following conditions are true:
    • The ADFS service is running on the computer that you use to access the SharePoint site.
    • The computer is running a 32-Bit version of Windows 7.
    • You use Windows Internet Explorer to access the SharePoint site. The Check for server certificate revocation option is enabled in Internet Explorer.
