If I start the "MySQL for Excel" and the window appears on the right side, nearly all available save file format options in Excel (.xlsm, .csv and all others) disappear. Only .xls-Format is still available. It´s not possible to save the file with macros and scripts anymore as they are deleted.

Thank you for the bug report.

Verified this only happens in Excel 2007 because of the override of the Save As dialog MySQL for Excel does due to the lack of a WorkbookAfterSave event in Excel 2007.

Changed the method to display a custom Save As dialog when a Workbook is saved in Excel 2007 to one that supports showing all Excel supported file filters.

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL for Excel 1.3.4 release, and here's the changelog entry:

For Excel 2007, only ".xls" files were available in the "Save As" dialog.
Now, all formats supported by Excel 2007 are available.

Thank you for the bug report.
