  • We fixed an issue where, when you had a Microsoft Excel 97-2003 Worksheet object embedded inside another application (such as a Word document), using the Convert feature to convert it to a Microsoft Excel Worksheet (Office OpenXML) object didn’t complete the conversion until you opened the embedded object and made a change to it. The object is completely converted when using the Convert feature now.
