Checking Compatibility
The Compatibility Checker identifies the potential loss of functionality when you save an
Excel workbook in the Excel 97-2003 Workbook file format. The Compatibility Check-
er generates a report that provides a summary of the potential losses and the number of
occurrences in the workbook. You can also specify what versions to show compatibility
issues. Use the report information to determine what caused each message and for sugges-
tions on how to change it. If the loss is due to a new feature in Excel 2013—such as new
functions, custom layouts or Quick Styles applied to shapes, pictures, and WordArt—you
might be able to simply remove the effect or feature. In other cases, you might not be able
to do anything about it. To maintain a visual appearance, SmartArt graphics and other ob-
jects with new effects are converted to bitmaps to preserve their overall look and cannot
be edited.
