Going back on the days events, I selected the trust center, external data to enable, switched back to prompt That spreadsheet worked yesterday or the day before. I'll try that and that didn't work.

You could try the following:
- If necessary, switch to Design Mode on the Developer tab of the ribbon.
- Select each of the command buttons in turn, note their names and captions, then delete them.
- Create new command buttons from the ActiveX Controls section of the Insert dropdown.
- Assign the old names to each of the buttons, and set their captions (click Properties to see all properties, including Caption).
- Save and close the workbook.
Regards,
Hans

Does the attached workbook work for you? I replaced the ActiveX buttons with Form buttons.

Yes, that works. It used to be possible to group objects but that doesn't seem to be possible right clicking on items holding the shift or ctrl does group objects. If it is not possible, Just thanks.
Thanks

Right-click on a button to select it.
Hold down Ctrl or Shift and right-click on another button to select it too.

Alternatively, on the Home tab of the ribbon, in the Editing group, click Find & Select > Select Objects.
You can then hold down Ctrl or Shift and left-click on buttons to select them.
Do not forget to turn off Select Objects when you're done.
Regards,
Hans

First method doesn't work, same behavior as I described earlier.
Second works but not what I wanted: same height, same left.
None the less, I appreciate our time.
Thanks
