kb2596927 Prevents Office 2007 Excel VBA macros from running

I have a client that is dependent on Excel 2007 and a bunch of macros written in vba to run their business. Some of the users let me know today that, all of a sudden, the macros that run when the worksheet file is opened are throwing a debug error.

The error is "object doesn't support this property or method" which is a runtime error of 438.

When I tried checking some things in the interactive window after clicking on the debug option, I couldn't get any object values to be available in VBA. For instance, checking the value of a button's visibility gave me the same error the user was getting. It was acting like none of the objects in the worksheet even existed!

After a little trial and error, I figured out that the users having the problem had applied the "Tuesday Night Security Patch" from Microsoft and started trying to narrow things down.

I pulled the Excel specific stuff first (just one file, really) and that didn't do it.

So, I kept digging...
