Hi Guys,

Each time I open Excel, the VB Editor associated with either Excel 2003 or 2010 opens up and displays the following error.


---------------------------
Microsoft Visual Basic
---------------------------
Compile error:

Object library invalid or contains references to object definitions that could not be found
---------------------------
OK   Help  
---------------------------

The VB project name is ExcelToGM6x.xla so Im assuming its something to do wtih the the Goldmine addin for office.

Any ideas why this is happening?

Thanks
D

Check your references within the VB editor.  Tools->References
See image.  
What you'll probably notice is one of the items checked will say that the reference is missing.  What ever it is you'll either need to install or find where it's located.

Open Excel
Go to help>about>disabled items, and re-enable the GoldMine addin.

In 2010 disabled items are accessed from the big round button excel options > addins

This is the line which is highlighted when the VB Editor loads.

Public Function GMDataExecute(ByVal sXMLIn As String, Optional ByRef GM As GoldMine.GoldMineData = Nothing) As String

Does that mean anything to you?

That tells me the goldmine addin is disabled.

when you look at the references as the screen shot shows, is there anything listed "MISSING:" ?

Same behavior for all users?

Try uninstall/reinstall the link?

Try turning off macro security in Excel?
