Excel: Can't Save Version 2.2 Document with CHOOSE(WEEKDAY(),)

Last reviewed: September 12, 1996
Article ID: Q103453

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Excel for the Macintosh, version 4.0

SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft Excel 4.0 for the Macintosh, if you are working with a version 2.2 Microsoft Excel file that contains a combination of the CHOOSE() and WEEKDAY() functions, such as =CHOOSE(WEEKDAY(),), and you attempt to resave the document in the version 2.2 file format, you will receive the following error message:

   Cannot write record (Cell: A2)
   Continue reporting each error?

WORKAROUND

To work around this situation, place the WEEKDAY() function in a separate cell and refer to that cell with the CHOOSE() function.

STATUS

We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
