Sheet metal table, excel 8 or higher error

We have a user running SW 2014 and Microsoft Office 2013. Prior to today, when he would create a sheet metal part he would have no issue selecting our custom bend able from the sheet metal configuration. This morning SW starting displaying the error that Excel 8 or higher needed to be installed to use custom tables.

 

If he opens a part that was already created ( already defined as sheet metal using our custom table ), he can open the file fine, and edit the gauge size based off of entries in our custom excel file, so SW clearly knows that table is there and can read it correctly for these options to be present. It's only when he creates a new part that SW displays the Excel 8 or higher message.

 

Any ideas why this would be ?
