      You create an XML Spreadsheet file by using Excel 2003 or Office Web Components (OWC10).You insert a PivotTable into the file, and then you filter the pivot items so that some are hidden.

    In this scenario, when you try to open this file by using Excel 2013, Excel 2013 may crash.


    Assume that you open an Excel workbook containing a PivotTable that is based on an Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) database. When you filter the data fields in the PivotTable, the fields that contains the '~' or '^' character may be displayed incorrectly.


    Assume that you insert a PivotTable into an Excel workbook. And then you select the check box of the Classic PivotTable layout (enables dragging of fields in the grid) option in the Display tab of the PivotTable Options dialog box. In this situation, when you print or print preview the PivotTable, the number of the pages to be printed may be incorrect.
