2007: File Types, Macro Security and Other Mysteries
When Microsoft released Excel 2007, it deployed some of the most
extensive changes to the product in many years. Some of these changes
have implications that are not always obvious to the user and, from
our point of view at least, are not always entirely welcome.
We've just posted a discussion of some critical issues about Excel
2007's new file types and macro security on the RealData blog. This
is important information for everyone who uses Excel 2007, and we
think it's essential reading for anyone who uses software like that
from RealData - applications that take advantage of Excel's macro
programming language to provide advanced functionality.
