When you ungroup a set of drawing objects, the name that was assigned to the group still appears in the Name box on the formula bar, and the Name box is in edit mode.


You selected the group name in the Name box on the formula bar before you ungrouped the drawing objects.


Click in the worksheet to refresh the Name box.


Do not select the group name in the Name box on the formula bar when you want to ungroup a set of drawing objects. Instead, select the group in the worksheet before clicking Ungroup on the Draw menu.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.


For more information about grouping objects, click the Index tab in Microsoft Excel 97 Help, type the following text
