INTRODUCTION

Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • In Office SharePoint Server 2007, you cannot search a Word Template (.dotx) file when the search is based on the contents of that Word Template (.dotx) file.
  • If a cell in a .xlsx file is of the Date type and the left side cell of this cell has a type but does not contain a value, the IFilter component treats this date type cell as a Number type cell. For example, if you input 1/1/2000 in this date type cell, the IFilter component displays it as 36526. 36526 is the serial value for 1/1/2000.
  • The original release of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 and MOSS 2007 Service Pack 2 behave differently when they crawl a .xlsm document. When you search for the .xlsm document in the original release of MOSS 2007, the .xlsm document appears in the Search Results window. However, when you search for the .xlsm document in MOSS 2007 Service Pack 2, the .xlsm document does not appear in the Search Results window.
