INTRODUCTION

Issues that this hotfix package fixes

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

• In Microsoft Office Word 2007, when you use a Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro to communicate with an application by using a COM interface, the macro takes a long time to finish. When you run the same macro in Microsoft Office Word 2003, the macro runs much faster.
• Consider the following scenario:

• In Word 2007, a document that is in the portrait orientation has frames that contain vertical text.
• Or, in Word 2007, a document that is in the landscape orientation has frames that contain horizontal text.
• You print this document to a regular printer or to a Microsoft XPS Document Writer printer.

In this scenario, the text may be missing or truncated. This issue also occurs when you save the document in the Microsoft XPS format or in the PDF format.

• Consider the following scenario. In Word 2007, you enable the AutoSave feature. You open a document that is located in a share folder. You edit a text box in the document. While you edit the text box, Word 2007 starts to save the AutoRecover information automatically. In this scenario, Word 2007 may close unexpectedly.
• In Word 2007, when you try to open a Word document that is created by an earlier version of Word, Word 2007 stops responding. However, the document can be opened correctly in Word 2002 and in Word 2003.
