RealData Programs Now Compatible with Excel 2007 and Vista as Well as
In years gone by -- and we've seen a lot of them, having started RealData in
1981 -- it would not have been such a big deal to announce that our programs
were compatible with the latest release of Microsoft Excel (Excel 2007) and
Microsoft Windows (Vista). The reason was simple. We could generally rely
on each new release of Excel to read and run programs created with the
previous version; and so long as Excel was compatible with Windows (a pretty
safe bet), then the operating system was a non-issue.
After a few decades, we began to treat these expectations as if they were a
law of nature.
Which brings us to our news flash. Excel 2007 is different. There are some
obvious compatibility issues if one tries to use Excel 2003 or earlier to
work with a file created in the new Excel 2007 format, and Microsoft
discusses those at length in its support knowledgebase. However, it appears
to us that Microsoft has said very little about 2007's "backward
compatibility," i.e., the new program's ability to use files and
applications created with pre-2007 versions of Excel.
