    An Error Occurred Initializing the VBA Libraries

    When I open up my a spreadsheet (my ICT coursework) I get the error message "an error occurred initializing the vba libraries (256)". Is there any way I can resolve this?

    "Start Excel.
    You press ALT + F11 to open Visual Basic Editor.
    When prompted to install VBA, click Yes."

    I am not prompted to install VBA - it just simply opens.

    Hi, Zadeth,

    try having a look at Tools/Links - I can give you detailed description of what to do but sadly enough only in my native tongue which is not english (and Im definitely having trouble translating everything accordingly ).

    Ciao,

    Hi, Zadeth,

    change to the VBE (ALT+F11), at the upper end you should see a Menu where Tools in my version is the 4. item from the right (including ?). If you open the menu the first item should be Links.

    HTH,

    What am I meant to be doing here? I don't mind if you're English isn't the best if you type/translate it - I should still be able to decipher it. ^^

    Re: An Error Occurred Initializing the VBA Libraries

    Hi, Zadath,

    the links listed at the top of the window should all be provided okay - if you find one telling you not available on this pc uncheck that link.

    Has anybody deleted software as of late (maybe deleted any of the files needed for Office/Excel)? If not and nobody else chips in with an idea on what to do or how to overcome the error message Id lay my hands on my Office-CD/DVD and reinstall Office (and use customized as option).

    Ciao,
    Holger
