Developed application in Excel 2010 VBA not working in Excel 2007

Last Modified: 2016-02-11
I developed a VBA driven workbook in Excel 2010 with ActiveX objects.

I have a user with Excel 2007 and the ActiveX Objects are frozen, combo box and command button. She did something that opened the debugger. I added a reference in the VBA editor for Microsoft Active X objects 2.8

But when I tried to test it I got a compile error.

Is Excel 2007 not compatible or is this a security setting issue?
