using office 2007 chart in office 2003

I have created a Line chart using Excel 2007 in compatibility mode. When I
open the workbook using Excel 2003 it does not know the chart sub-type, and
when the chart is regenerated by my macro it defaults to 'Line with markers
displayed at each data value'. I need to distribute my chart to users running
Office 2003, and I need the chart to retain the original chart type. Any
ideas please?

The rule of thumb if your workbooks are to be shared with users of
different Excel versions, is to create your workbook in the oldest
version that any of the users has. Unfortunately Compatibility Mode
doesn't really mean Excel 2003.

I have got around the problem by resetting the chart type from within my
macro, so it now works correctly on both 2003 and 2007.
