Buttons displaying for a half second, then disappearing

Hello all,

I've posted this question in tandem with another problem I had in the following thread http://www.mrexcel.com/board2/viewtopic.php?t=63240&highlight= but never received an answer to this portion of the question. Therefore, I am starting a thread specifically for this problem. Hope you don't mind.

Win98, Excel 97/8

I have a spreadsheet with a number of buttons (6) at the top of the spreadsheet. When the spreadsheet is opened up the 6 buttons display for a split second and then promptly disappear, leaving 1 grey box the size and shape of the first button. This grey box cannot be clicked and or moved. It just "exists". icon_banghead.gif

The only way I can get the macros (tied to the buttons) to run is to go in to Visual Basic and run them from there. Counter-productive to say the least.

Nothing I can see explains this behaviour. Can anyone come up with a "fix" for this?

Thanks in advance,
Loki

Do you know what type of control it is ?
Sometimes if you have an ActiveX control created by another SS Application run on another, the Control will not show properly. AFAIK this is because it is not registered on the current SS or it has lost the registered link.
If this is correct then you need to register the control.

Re: Buttons displaying for a half second, then disappearing

Excuse my ignorance .. but I am not sure what you mean by "type of control".

All I did was create the macros in Visual Basic and then I created the buttons and tied that buttons to their respectice macros. I didn't use Active X.

So how would I go about registering the control?

Thanks,
Loki
