Microsoft reissues Excel patch

Microsoft has reissued an Excel security patch published earlier this month, following the update having made it impossible for some Excel 2000 users to open documents. The problem affects certain versions of Excel 2000, which have been set to support certain Asian languages by default, Microsoft said.

Excel 2000 users will find that they cannot open some Excel documents after they install the MS07-002 security update, if they have also configured Excel's "executable mode" to Korean Japanese, or Korean, Microsoft said in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article posted Thursday.
