    1) it would have been nice if you had mentioned Wine in your title, normaly nobody here is very interested in MS Office
    2) there is a special Tumbleweed part of these Forums. Why didn't you post there?

    It is a graphics driver problem. https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28798
    It's fixed in version 2.16.0 of the Intel driver.

    It made me curious enough to look. Why would someone with MS Office problems post in these forums?

    1) i am sorry, but it was already mentioned in the link i had posted.
    2) i thought 'Applications' was a better choice. sorry again.

    @ chief_sealth,
    i'm not a fan of Microsoft Office, but i have to use 'Excel' for my work.

    @ dimesio
    thanks for the solution. i'll give it a try.

    It is sorry to yourself . It wasn't in the title, a good title draws the good people to your thread. In your case it should draw the attention of Wine people, not of the non-existing MS Office people. All in your favour.
    2) i thought 'Applications' was a better choice. sorry again.
    Because Tumbleweed is something very different from the "official" openSUSE we try to have that at a special forum. To make things less difficult to those (new) openSUSE users, who probably do not even know what Tumbleweed is. It is the same as we try to have beta released version questions separate.

    I am a "Wine person" and I just assumed it was under Wine.

    @ dimesio,
    tried to find my graphics driver version and i'm a bit confused. i'm posting my system info snapshots:

    OpenGL Information: SUSE Paste

    X- Server Information: SUSE Paste

    can you help me out? which one should be updated to "2.16.0" and how to do so? as i mentioned before, i'm using Tumbleweed

    thanks a lot for your help

    I found a package for the 2.16 driver for openSUSE 11.4 on the OBS. I don't know if you can use it on Tumbleweed; ask on the Tumbleweed forum. (If it messes up your system, that's not something I have the skill to help you fix.)

    BTW, your other option to upgrading is to downgrade to a driver older than 2.11, which is when the regression was introduced.
