I have one remote user who is experiencing this issue. She's running Windows XP SP3, Office 2003 and is fully patched up and it's affecting all office products, not just excel. As all of the documents she works on contain macros, this is causing her severe difficulty. I have researched for 3 days not but cannot find a solution. I have uninstalled and re-installed the VBA tools (uninstalling and reinstalling Access in the process). I have tried a repair, I have checked that her oleaut32.dll is the same as mine. I am thinking that it may be a profile related issue but I don't know. Does anyone have any other suggestions for me?
