Cannot create add Active X Command Button to worksheet

I have created an Excel xlsm workbook using Excel version 2007 with a command button that calls a form to display on the screen for the user.

When the user opens the same workbook using Excel 2010, the command button does not work.  When I right click on the Command Button there is no VBA code attached to the button.  In addition, when I try to add another command button to the worksheet, I get an error that the Object Cannot be Created.
The Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.8 Library is checked.

What do I need to do to allow this object to work?

Thanks

Glen

The Microsoft December 2014 security update appears to have broken some ActiveX functionality, but it is easy to resolve. Please see this question that I solved just a couple of days ago.

This worked for me. When initially trying to replicate your problem. I couldn't add an ActiveX command button to a Word document, but after finding and removing ALL instances of MSForms.exd and restarting Word, I was able to.

I will notify my client's IT department to try this fix.

Just to add to this, Microsoft is currently up to version 9 of its support article at https://support.microsoft.com/kb/3025036/EN-US.  It looks like the problem is not yet fixed for everyone by following Microsoft's instructions.
