I have a question regarding an ACCESS 2003 db that is being used with Offiice 2007.  I have Office 2007 and I can access the 2003 db just fine, but when I try to create an excel spreadsheet with relevant data, which is generated by using a template on the network, I get errors.  I've tried changing the template to an .xlsm file that has all the security shut off.  That didn't work though.  For some reason I can't get the activeX controls on the template to load.  If I just open up the template, the controls load fine, but when the template is called from code in the Access db, I get errors and the controls won't load.  The controls in this case are buttons.  Does anybody have any advice on how to mitigate this issue?  I'm trying hard not to upgrade the db to 2007.  Thanks
