    • You open the same workbook in a second Excel 2010 instance, and then click the Notify button.
    • You close the first Excel 2010 instance.
    • You click the Read-Write button in the File Now Available dialog box in the second Excel 2010 instance. 
    In this scenario, hyperlinks in the workbook do no work. Additionally, this issue remains after you save the workbook.
  • In Excel 2010, the tooltip does not display the value of a series in a PivotChart chart that is connected to an On-Line Analytical Processing (OLAP) data source.
