In Microsoft Excel 2000, when you open a Microsoft Excel 95 workbook, grouped drawing objects may be in different positions than they were in Excel 95.


This problem occurs in the conversion process that Excel 2000 uses to convert the drawing objects from Excel 95 format.

Compared to Excel 95, Excel 2000 contains drawing feature enhancements, and uses a different internal format for drawing objects. When Excel 2000 opens an Excel 95 workbook that contains drawing objects, Excel 2000 converts the objects to this new internal format.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.

This problem was first corrected in Microsoft Office 2000 Service Pack 3 (SP-3).
