Have you installed the patch?

And more importantly, does everything still work? <VBG>

The only reason I noticed this was because I just got a new box with Win 7 
and XL07 and I'm plowing through all the support sites trying to configure 
everything to some semblance of familiarity to what I've been accustomed to.

Needless to say, its a lost cause ... everything's too different ... so I've 
no time *OR* inclination to take chances with patches ... that is until 
they're at least a couple of months old.

Let me tell you guys ... this Ribbon is a SOB ! ! !<bg>

Take note of what I said and what Biff alluded to - MS has been screwing up 
patches ... lately.

Not too bad if it's your machine ... BUT if it's a customers ... WELLLL !

I use the patch description to try to avoid the conditions that allow the 
problem to occur, and to buy time for OTHERS to test out Redmond's 
programmers.<bg>

That's pretty much how I do it.

**Nothing** ever goes smoothly when I install patches, upgrades, new 
software, etc. **Nothing**

Is is me? Or is Excel 2007 Charting Lame?
Maybe I'm missing something. If so, let me know. The process of creating a chart is unintuitive and cumbersome. A big step backwards from 2003. The manual says to just select your data and insert the chart. What I find is that 95% of the time, I have to re-do the data selection. If I highlight two columns and insert the graph, Excel thinks both columns are two different series instead of x and y axis. I create two columns, label one of them "X", one of them "Y". Put some numbers below that. Now insert an XY chart. One would think that it could figure out "...
