Summary
This article describes the Microsoft Office Excel 2007 issues that are fixed in the hotfix package that is dated June 30, 2009.
INTRODUCTION

Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • The color of negative numbers for an axis in a chart is incorrect. For example, if you set the color of the negative numbers for the y-axis to red, the numbers display in black. However, if you set the color to black, the numbers display in red.

  • When you paste a chart into a Word 2007 document or a PowerPoint 2007 presentation, the formats of the negative numbers for the y-axis are displayed incorrectly.

  • When you try to copy a duplicate chart in Excel 2007, the original chart is copied instead of the duplicate chart. This problem occurs when the name of the original chart was changed manually before you copy the chart.

  • When you run an add-in that has many recalculation calls in Excel 2007, performance is slow.

  • A workbook is linked to several other workbooks and the source files are already opened by another user. When you update the links, it takes a long time.
