SUMMARY

This article describes the Microsoft Excel 2010 issues that are fixed in the hotfix package that is dated June 26, 2012.

INTRODUCTION

Issue that this hotfix package fixes

  • Assume that you clear the Enable multi-threaded processing check box in Excel 2010. When you restart Excel 2010, the check box is selected unexpectedly.
  • When you import an .html file, a period (.) is replaced by a comma (,) even if the value is explicitly formatted as text in the .html file. This issue occurs if the current locale uses a comma as a decimal separator.


  • When you press Shift+Y while Caps Lock is enabled, the resultant character in the text box is incorrect. You expect "y" to appear, but "]" appears instead.
  • Assume that you have a text box that contains some Double-Byte Character Set (DBCS) characters and some ASCII characters in an Excel workbook. You save the workbook as an .xls file in Excel 2010. In this situation, when you open the .xls file in Microsoft Office Excel 2003, some text formatting is lost.
  • Assume that you have a PowerPivot report that has some Pivot Tables and some slicers in Excel 2010. When you click a slicer, you receive the following error message:
    Initialization of the data source failed. Check the database server or contact your database administrator. Make sure the external database is available, and then try the operation again. If you see this message again, create a new data source to connect to the database.

    Note No error has actually occurred in Excel 2010.
