ActiveX controls showing a big red X on my workbook


If you’ve ever used ActiveX controls on your Excel Spreadsheet you may have run into the problem of the control suddenly no longer working. When you open the workbook there’s nothing but a big red X in the place of where your control used to be. The tree-view (treeview) control comes to mind, which may have stopped working after applying the fix in KB article 982308 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/982308). Fret not, for there is a hotfix available to remedy this behavior. It is here – http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2483214. This will restore the treeview control to full working order.

Will
