I am working with a program that copies data from Oracle Database and then populates a spreadsheet in Excel. The program has always worked and still works except on one computer. The program will not open excel and I get error #2147024895 Automation error. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what is causing this error? The only other time I've seen this error with our program was on a users computer who was using a database add-in named Hyperion. I've checked this user's Excel setup, and there aren't any add-ins being used that aren't being used on computers not recieving the error.

Are you using Early binding? If so, you may want to check the version of excel on that machine and maybe even what type library is installed on that machine.  If this doesn't help try using late binding. ie:  Dim objExcel as object,  Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
