Full row and full column references automatically take into account the cells in the larger grid size of Excel 2007 and later. This means that the reference =A:A, which refers to cells A1:A65536 in earlier versions of Excel, refers to cells A1:A1048576 in the Excel 2007 and later file format.
Converting a workbook from an earlier version of Excel to the Excel 2007 and later file format can cause problems when full row or column references are used in that workbook, and data that was not meant to be included in the references has been entered in cells that are beyond the row and column limit of the earlier version of Excel.

Outlook 98 was initially a free download and later remained as a free upgrade for Outlook 97 users adding new features - most notably support for non-Exchange accounts. Its availability has been pulled shortly before the release of Outlook 2000. As its release was outside the normal release cycle of the Office suites (to which the version numbers have been tied), the version number of Outlook 98 could not be a full version higher than Outlook 97.
