I am using an Interactive Broker's DDE Excel 2010 spreadsheet that links to Interactive Broker's Trader Workstation.

One of the sheets titled "Basic Orders" has command buttons (Not Active X) that are not working on my new Windows 8.1 system. Other links to Trader Workstation seem to work. As an example I'm able to process the "Request Market" button on the "Tickers" sheet. The Request Market button is the exact same type of button.

I have seen that happen before and the only way I was able to get things working again was by replacing all controls with new ones.
The file in question, is (or was) it by any chance in xls format?

It's an xlsm file. Active X controls work fine and these form controls work properly on other sheets within this file. It appears that this one sheet within the file may be corrupt.
