Problems with Excel 2007 and Tablet Pen??

Hi everyone,

Recently our office upgraded our tablet PC's to the new Motion LE series.  Everything is fine, except our company uses an Excel based software that doesn't seem to work right when used with the tablet's pen. To simplify the program, there are up and down arrows that when clicked will increase or decrease a number. When I attach the keyboard and click on the arrows with the keyboard "mouse" they work fine. When I try to use the pen to click the arrows, nothing will happen until I click on another cell.

I have this installed on other tablets and it works fine, so I'm really at a loss right now.  I'm also using Office 2007 and Vista.  Thanks for any help.

do you have the latest pen driver for the Motion? This is for the LE1700. http://www.motioncomputing.com/drivers/LE1700/LE1700_WacomPen_v2784_vista_RN.htm

I can only think maybe the driver is messed up. We have the LE1600 and we have had to reinstall drivers for Vista before.

Turns out it was a problem with Office 2007.  I installed Office 2003 and it works like a charm.

Thanks
