When you insert a picture into a Microsoft Office 97 program, and then attempt to edit or ungroup the picture, the picture disappears.


This problem occurs when you do the following:

  • You insert a Windows Metafile (.wmf) picture into a Microsoft Office 97 document.


  • You attempt to either edit or ungroup the .wmf picture.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
