Excel with ActiveX controls failing with multiple VBA errors mostly 32809

Related to this sort of MS Security update:


This worked for us:

  1. Open a blank version of excel.
  2. Disable ActiveX controls in Excel Options.


  1. Open the offending file. (Click through any error received upon open)
  2. Save the file as a new name.
  3. Activate ActiveX controls.

So saving file without ActiveX enabled does something? anyway worked for us.
