Hello

I had this problem since a long time. I decided to resolved it Activex button on my sheet are not working. Each time I use one of them, It show that I select them like if I want to modify them. They don't execute their task.

Excuse my English

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

The most likely problem is an office update changing the fm20.dll library. Read the instructions here for some steps to try and resolve the issue (the parts about deleting .exd files are the most likely): Office Update breaks ActiveX controls | Excel Matters

If at all possible, use Form controls instead as they are a lot more stable.

Post your code
Exemple. I got many button like this one. All activex function are not working. All other macro work flawlessly



Private Sub SpinButton19_Change() On Error Resume Next
Allowspin = True
SpinChange = SpinButton19.Value - 10
Value1 = LongLimitEntry_.Value
Value1 = Value1 + ((SpinChange) * Worksheets("Data_In_Out").Range("BigPipMouvementPerClick").Value)
LongLimitEntry_ = Value1
SpinButton19.Value = 10
Allowspin = False
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

I agree with RoryA ...

Change the ActiveX button to a regular CommandButton.
