Hello,
have recently installed SAM, an application used for data analysis and works as add-in in office excel.

After installing it everytime I start or close Excel a message appears "Microsoft Visual Basic - Compile error in hidden module: samPlotController".

Please advise me how to resolve this issue.

Have you checked for updated versions or patches for SAM? What version of Office are you running? Patched that with any Service Packs? Check to make sure SAM is compatable with the version of Excel you are running?

I am using SAM version 3.11 which I think is the latest. I have Office 2007 installed on my system which should be compatible with this version of SAM.
Sorry I didn't understand what you mean by " patched with any service packs".

Service Packs are bug fixes that get put out after the product ships, Officke 2007 is on SP2 now. You may need to contact the vendor of the software, they'd know best how to fix the error. Sounds like they either used bad code in a plug-in, or you have some security setting that prevents something from running.
