I downloaded a utility from the web several months ago that would convert Excel95 macros to Excel97.  I've searched high and low but can't find it on the web or remember its name, author or where I found it.  I believe it was an Excel add-in.
Can anyone direct me to the site where this utility might be?

Hi Mahudso!

I'm familiar with the routine you mentioned, however Microsoft pulled it from their site in December as it was causing problems with the new architecture in Excel 97. I know they fixed the conversion problem in Office 97 and Office Pro 97 with the release of the Service Release patch #1, but there's no mention anywhere of a fix for the standalone version of Excel 97.

If your using either version of Office 97, install Service Release #1 and you should be able to use your 95 macros. You will lose some features with enabling/disabling menus, auto shapes not rotating, VB signals and create object run time errors, so you may have to rebuild portions of the macros to get these things back.

Good answer.  Actually, I later found the object I was looking for - Dial_con.exe - at Microsoft's site.  This file - converts Excel95 dialog boxes to Office 97.  Thanks for your help.
