Gearbox problems

Hi Yesterday, I changed the oil in my 2.5 v6 automatic Rover 75 and that seemed to go well. However, this morning I cant drive away because the automatic gearbox wont engage in Drive (or the other gears) . Reverse seems to be ok though. When I put it in drive, I need to rev the engine to the floor, for the car to begin to move forward - slowly. I cant see how the oil change could have caused this. Does anyone have any ideas whats going on here? Any thought would be welcome. Thanks.

Is the oil level correct? If the level is low it can cause it to slip like you describe.
When you top the oil up you should run the car and put it through all the gears before checking so the oil can fill up the torque converter etc.
Did you have the vehicle running when you checked the oil?
