User-defined type not defined

Posted on 2009-04-10
Last Modified: 2012-06-27

I am using an Excel file coded with VB. As it is a holiday weekend, I can't get in touch with the person who coded this file, so I am trying to figure this out on my own. I fill in the Excel sheet with the required data, then click on a 'Submit' button. What it's supposed to do is update the database with the Excel data, but instead it opens VB and gives me the user-defined type not defined error. I have seen this in some other posts on here, and have tried to go to Tools > References, but References is grayed out. I also have version 3 of the Soap Library on my workstation, which is what I think the compilation error is referencing. Please see attached. Thanks.

In the VBE make sure you press stop then tools references ought to be enabled and retry to add the reference.
