Microsoft Excel 2010 Visual Basic Runtime Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I work for a law firm as their new in-house IT Professional.  I'm pretty up to date on what's happening in the world of Microsoft products.  However, I've never seen this kind of error before.  So here's what's going on:

    Every time we open up Microsoft Excel 2010, we receive a Microsoft Visual Basic Runtime Error '53'.  It tells me that a file is not found, but it does not tell me what file is missing.

    The error window gives me the option to End, Debug, or Help.  If I click End, I can use the program just fine without errors.  If I click on Debug, it opens Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications with a line of code highlighted in the file "tmexcel.xla."  The line of code that is highlighted is:

    Set pic = stdole.StdFunctions.LoadPicture(ProgDir + "\tminsider.bmp")

    I'm not a programmer by nature so I'm not exactly sure what that line of code means.

    What do I need to do to get this message to stop showing up every time I start Excel?
