Userform controls disappearing from worksheet

Hi All

I have a workbook where two of the sheets have controls - one is a shape (basically a custom button) linked to a macro and a there is also a textbox linked to a cell. For years these have worked fine. However, now, when I save the workbook and reopen it, the button and the textbox have disappeared. If I recreate them they work fine but, as soon as I save and close, they disappear again when the workbook is reopened.

The display options for the workbook are already set to "for objects show: All", so this is not the issue.

Any thoughts?

Can you attach the workbook.

Sorry guys. I have managed to solve the issue by updating an earlier version of the workbook and it seems to be working fine. For some reason, the faulty version only had an issue when I saved and downloaded it to/from Onedrive and didn't have a version saved locally, but the updated version opens fine locally and online.

Thanks for letting us know. I don't think you are referring to UserForm controls though, more likely ActiveX
