This problem occur if the following conditions are true:
- The workbook contains a reference to the RealAudio ActiveX Control Library, RAOCX32.DLL.
The macro contains code similar to the following:

Do not use the CreateObject method to create a RealAudio ActiveX control in Microsoft Excel 97.
RealAudio ActiveX controls do not currently support the use of the CreateObject method. Also, because RealAudio ActiveX controls do not support the IDataObject OLE interface, you cannot insert them into worksheets in Microsoft Excel 97. You can use them only in UserForms in Microsoft Excel 97.
