    Re: Upgrade from 2002 to 2003 (Excel 2002)

    The title of your post "from 2002 to 2003" and states Excel 2002 as the version. The body of your post says "upgrading from Office 2000 to Office 2003". Which question are you asking? If is is from 2000 the title of your original post needs changing accordingly.

    Re: Upgrade from 2002 to 2003 (Excel 2002)

    Oops. Yes you're right.
    The upgrade is from 2000 to 2003.
    How do I change the subject?

    Upgrade from 2000 to 2003 (Excel 2000)

    title amended by unkamunka 21:18 UTC 15-04-05 to reflect intended content

    We are currently going through the initial planning stages of upgrading from Office 2000 to Office 2003 some time in September, 2005
    I have a concern, valid or not, that some of our 'complex' spreadsheet models may not produce the same results in the new version.
    Is there any information available that details the differences between these versions.
    What I'm after is differences in results of function, or whether the same functions now require different arguments.
    eg. vlookup(), the col_index_num. currently the first column is 1, will this be different in that the first column will be column 0
    We will be going through a period of testing our models prior to migrating, but if I could get a list detailing the differences at the discrete level, we could focus our resources to those areas where we know there will be a difference.
    Regards

    I can assure you, there will be no differences in things like that.
    Function arguments have not been changed, apart from extra arguments for the subtotal function, which enable you to exclude hidden rows from the sum (with previous versions, only filtered rows are ignored by subtotal, with these new ones, hidden rows are ignored as well, provided you use the new argument.
    The differences will be with macros, which need to be treated separately.
    I'd say you should be 99% safe.

    Not sure if this could be an issue. I have seen that when going from XL97 to XL2002 there is some backwards incompatibility in hyperlinks. Hyperlinks created/edited in later versions do not work (are invalid) in earlier versions. Since we have not converted everyone this was an issue.

    <post#=443243>post 443243</post#> describes the problem and a workaround via code.
