    Text Tools (Add in) Error

    I assume many people are familiar with the Microsoft add in "Text Tools". It is commonly used in our office. Most of us have been getting upgraded to Excel 2010 and subsequently have had to go back and add it into the new version of excel. While it has been working fine in general, there is one case where we haven't been able to get it to work and don't know why. We can install it as an add-in and get it to show up just fine. However, when this person tries to Text Tools, an error message pops up each time "Compile Error: Variable Not Defnied" and takes you to the VB editor. The code that is highlighted is:

    This is the very beginning of the code in the "ForumMain" module. "RefEdit1.Text" is what is highlighted.

    Sorry if I haven't explained this well enough. I'm happy to give any more information if someone can point me in a direction on what is needed. This is the first time I have ever tried to trouble shoot an add in so I'm certainly out of my league. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Also, I probably should have mentioned that we have gone in and tried removing and re-adding the file a few times. Made sure it was saved as an excel 2010 add in file type to check that as well.

    I guess, so far, no one has been able to figure anything out. Not sure if this info helps or not...

    Apparently if the data is pasted in the text tools sheet after it is opened, it will actually run the add in. Not meant to work that way of course, but maybe that will help someone out.

    I've never heard of Text Tools. What is it, what does it do?
