INTRODUCTION

Issues that this hotfix package fixes

This hotfix package fixes the following issue:
958146 The text in a Graph object in an Office 2003 application seems to overlap or seems to be squeezed together when you use Excel 2003 on a Terminal Services client that is running in Monitor Spanning mode
This hotfix package fixes the following issue that was not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

You have the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats installed on a computer that also has Microsoft Office Excel 2003 installed. You run a Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications macro that uses the WorkBook Open event to return the FullName property of the workbook that is opened. If you run the macro to open a Microsoft Office Excel 2007 workbook (.xlsx), the FullName property returns the path of a .tmp file that is created by the converter. It does not return the path and the file name of the .xlsx file that was opened.
