Hey There

I used the code attached below to Open Excel from behind a button in Excel as a prroof of concept kind of thing.  Now, armed with the code snippet, I am trying to get this to work
in Visio.  However, I am not having any luck.  I get the error message "User-defined type not defined" on the first line.  Is there a refrence or library I need to add to call Excel from behind a button in Visio?


Dim exapp As Excel.Application
    Dim exbook As Excel.Workbook
    Dim exsheet As Excel.Worksheet
    Set xlapp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    Set xlBook = xlapp.Workbooks.Open("C:\QualityDashboard\quality_dashboard.xls")
    Set exsheet = xlBook.Worksheets("Training")
    xlapp.Visible = True
