Office 2007 can't synchronize Excel lists

  Asked By: Sonya    Date: Oct 06    Category: MOSS    Views: 1346

When I open an exported spreadsheet from my SP 2003 environment, I am
able to update the contents and synchronize back to SP by using the
Refresh List function. However, this same spreadsheet opened in
Office 2007 Excel does not appear as a list and consequently does not
provide an option to synchronize back. Furthermore, the spreadsheet
opens in Read-Only mode. Is this by design? Does this mean the
"Export to Spreadsheet" in SP2003 doesn't work at all in Office 2007?

First, I think that this is the Excel 2003 hot fix I think that you are
looking for:

Second, Access 2007 is the tool Microsoft moved synchronization to in
Office 2007. However, there was such an outcry for the loss of the
functionality in Excel 2007 that they also made a post RTM add-in that
restores synchronization with WSS v3.
