I am running a Windows XP computer with MS Office 2003. When using MS Word or any Excel documents, I am getting various error messages stated below:
When opening MS Word and MS Excel in the title bar, I am getting an error stating: Microsoft Visual Basic "Compile Error in hidden module AutoExec". When I tried to open the two from my Desktop, I am getting the same error message. And when closing the two in the title bar, I am getting an error stating: Microsoft Visual Basic "Compile Error in hidden module DistMon". I could not understand why I am receiving the following errors. I tried to uninstall and re-install back my MS Office 2003 and even revert to MS Office 2000 but none works so far. Can someone please help me?
Errors on running MS Word and Excel 2003
The errors you are receiving with the MS Office applications are due to some modifications that you may have done to the code in the Visual Basic Editor for each application, and therefore you may need to access the VBA editor and rectify the errors from there.
You will need to do the following for each application:
On your keyboard, press ALT+F11 key combination to open the VBA editor.
In the VBA editor, go to the modules that you may have created, and crosscheck the code for any syntax or semantic errors, or any statements that might not be right and rectify them.
Save changes, close the VBA editor, and then try running the ms office application again.
When one works, open another application and repeat the procedure for it.
