intermittently with my xlsb workbooks, I receive a "Automation error, Invalid forward reference, or reference to compiled type"

I notice it occurs when the code is selecting/activating a tab (worksheet)...if I manually go to that worksheet, then run the rest of the code, it works.

The only way I found to fix this issue is if I use an older archived file (e.g., a file dated 2 days ago) and override the main template. oddly, this kind of thing seems to happen with different files I run on the network drive.

perhaps my excel is just messed up (2016).

ok, this seemed to work

enabling "AccessibilitycplAdmin 1.0 type admin"under tools- references in the VBA editor...so odd
