Default Export chart to GIF no longer works after installing Excel 2007b2

I've used the following Visual Basic code in Excel 2000 to export a chart to
GIF. However, after installing Excel 2007b2 I now get errors (method of
export failed) when using the same old code in Excel 2000 and cannot export.
Does anybody know if something has changed?

ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(1).Activate
ActiveChart.Export Filename:="C:\Documents and Settings\user\My
Documents\mychart.gif", filtername:="gif"

Tushar, thank you for your response.
If the GIF filter was somehow removed by the install of Excel 2007b2, do you
think reinstalling Excel 2000 would be a reasonable fix?

BTW - I believe you helped me with a charting issue many years ago and I'd
just like to thank you for taking the time to help me and the Excel community.

I don't know if reinstalling XL2000 will cure that problem w/o introducing
other problems. In my case, I tend to install beta products on a separate
machine altogether or at least in a separate instance of Virtual PC.

In general, when installing multiple versions of a product, I tend to
install oldest first. But, all bets are off when it comes to a beta
version.

You are welcome.

Default Export chart to GIF no longer works after installing Excel 200

I noticed this problem on one of my computers. The filters in the Microsoft
Shared folder are all newer than Office 2003, dated in 2006. Except for the
TIFF filter, which is still dated 2000, and the export to TIFF still works.
I tried to reinstall Office 2003's filters, but apparently it checks the
file date stamp prior to overwriting, and the files didn't change. I didn't
yet try deleting the filters then reinstalling.

Jon,
Thank you very much for your insight. It sounds like you're onto something
and I would very much want to give a try at reverting back to the old GIF
filter. However, I must confess, I don't know the location of the shared
folder, nor the name of the gif filter. Can you help?

Pete

Jon,
I did some further digging and was able to find a solution. I'll include my
solution just in case it might help someone in the community...

Microsoft shared files are located here... C:\Program Files\Common
Files\Microsoft Shared\Grphflt

I simply took an Excel 2000 version of the gif filter (GIFIMP32.FLT) from
another computer and copied it to the above-mentioned directory, thereby
replacing what was an Excel 2007 version of the gif filter.

Now exporting gif's in Excel 2000 is as it has always been, flawless.
I thank you for your help. I couldn't have done it without you.

Pete
