    Recently found out that an MS update causes issues on some pc and causing the user to get run-time error 32809. There is a link with MS information and fix. My question is can vba be coded that if the user receives that run-time error, it can direct them to the link to perform the fix so the spreadsheet command buttons will start working again. If so, is there any code already available to do that?

    Nice idea, but then Microsoft would already need to nkow that a specific error is caused or will be caused by an update they are planning.
    I think that you could put some code together that will do a search on the Internet or maybe specic in the Microsif knowledgaebase using the generated runtime error, but the you will need to make sure that your errortrapping does not halt everything but triggers a new macro to open an IE (or other browser for that mattar) to see if there is something known but the user will have do make the final choice to actually apply a fic if it is found.
    Think of your car dealer that programs your car to drive you to the workshop ir error 23400 occurs (empty gas tank) how are you going to get there?

    If the same error is thrown each time you can certainly add standard Error Handling using the "On Error" statement. Just google "Error Trapping VBA"
