vrf EXCEL Problem: "SaveAs" is working with Excel2002 under WIN2k, but not under WIN ME

Question asked by hansolofalcon on Apr 24, 2003
Hello from Gregg C Levine
Regarding WinME, and Win2K. Yes there is a difference. WinME, is an
interim release between Win98, and WinXP. It was simply the last
release of the past century. When XP came out, all pre-Century
releases, including ME, were going to be considered, no longer
supported by its users, by Microsoft. Now we've got a date for Win98,
that is the date when physical support ends for Win98. Its date is
June 30.

Normally all programs come with specifics. A program which was written
on NT, or 2K, will run on 98/ME, et cetera. Unless during the install
process there is a message that says so. However, Excel is part of
Office, and it has to run everywhere. This might be a bug for the
folks at Microsoft to ponder.
