This hotfix fixes the following issues that were not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

• In Excel 2007, you set the color of a cell to light green, and then you save the workbook in the Excel 97-2003 Workbook (*.xls) or Excel Workbook (*xlsx) file format. However, when you open the file in Microsoft Office Excel 2003, the color of the cell is now yellow.
• You copy a range of cells from Excel 2007, and then you open a Microsoft Office Word 2007 document or a Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 presentation. On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, you click Paste, and then you click Paste Special. In the Paste As list, you select Picture (Windows Metafile), and then you click OK. A picture of the cells appears. Then you print the document or the presentation to a PostScript printer.However, the picture of the cells prints as a black rectangle.
