SUMMARY

This article describes the Microsoft Office Excel 2007 issues that are fixed in the hotfix package that is dated December 13, 2011.

INTRODUCTION

Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • Consider the following scenario:
    • User A creates an .xslx file in Excel 2007.
    • User A edits the file and saves it in a shared folder. User A does not close the file.
    • User A disconnects from the shared folder.
    • Later, user B opens, edits, and saves the file. User B closes the file.
    • User A reconnects to the shared folder, edits the file, and then saves the file.

    In this scenario, user A does not receive a warning message that states that the .xslx file was updated by user B. Therefore, the .xslx file loses all the updates that user B previously made.


    Note
    This issue still occurs after user A and user B apply the hotfix package that is described in Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) article 2544402.
  • When you use the Import Spreadsheet command on a SharePoint site collection to create a list based on an Excel 2007 file, you receive the following error message:

    Method 'Post' of object 'IOWSPostData' failed.
  • You create a dynamic defined name for a column of data in an Excel 2007 workbook. Then, you create a chart for the column of data. In this situation, data that has no numeric value, such as "N/A", is plotted as a zero on the chart. However, data that has no numeric value should not be plotted on the chart.
