Excel 365 Missing object description activeX

Occasional Contributor

I have a fairly large excel 365 program with many tabs.

All of a sudden my activeX buttons have no properties. Accessibility says "missing object description(1000+)

The assigned vba still functions.

Repaired and Reinstalled office office with no fix

started excel in safe mode with no success.

Please help

My gut feeling says you'll have to remove the buttons and add them back anew.

@Jan Karel Pietersethanks for your reply. Yes, i can but what is the root cause? Can the properties be restore using VBA?

That would be a guess from my end. Like an update to the activeX library that "contains" those buttons. But then again, ActiveX controls have their issues (which is why I prefer not to use them on the spreadsheet grid at all).
I'll follow your lead and not use activeX.
