How to get 2003 Excel spreadsheets to run smoothly in 2007 Excel?.

I created a Planner in Excel 2003, and have upgraded to Excel 2007. The
planner opens fine in 2007, but I cannot readily scroll down through a sheet,
as it scrolls 1 row by 1 row.

I can save in both .xls and .xlsx, but each runs poorly as noted above.

Any advice ?

Thank You

you didn't say if it was using the mouse wheel or if it was on a different
pc or not. but check the mouse settings in control panel. adjust the
vertical scrolling speed.

if not, i'm not sure what you mean.

Does this slowdown occur only with your planner or with all Excel 2007
spreadsheets?

Bill & Gary,
Thank you for your time to reply.

Increasing the mouse scroll speed helped a bit.

Oddly enough, the slow-down only occurs on 1 sheet of an Excel book of 6
sheets. The remaining sheets scroll fine. The problem sheet is an array of
7 days x 53 weeks (with a text box between each week -- to add notes for the
week).

All my other .xls files run fine & can be saved in .xlsx & run fine.

I've thought about breaking the one sheet into 4 separate sheets of 3 months
per sheet, but the scroll is so slow, it won't scroll down to following weeks
to select and copy.

Thank you for your time,

Malcolm
