SmartArt graphics in earlier versions of Office
SmartArt graphics are incompatible with Office 2004 or earlier. Instead, the SmartArt graphics are converted to pictures when you save a file in Office 2004 or an earlier file format, such as Excel 97–2004 Workbook, and then open it in Office 2004 or earlier.
After the SmartArt graphic converts to a picture, you cannot edit its contents or change the layout.
If you later save the file in the Office 2008 format or a later file format, the picture reverts to a SmartArt graphic unless you have formatted the picture.
|Note SmartArt graphics are compatible with the 2007 Microsoft Office system (for Windows) or later.|
