BAM Add-In Excel Issue : Object library invalid or contains references to object definitions that could not be found.

Recently when I opened Excel every time I got a weird Error for BAM Add-In.
Incidently I have not messed up with BAM recently for sure.  After googling a bit I could not find any post related to BAM Add-In issue but many with VBA macros failing after a Cumulative update.
My laptop is set to auto update the system with latest updates as I love to try new features out in Microsoft market and this Cumulative update had messed up the macro settings in Excel.

The point here is if you get Errors related to BAM Add-In Excel macro while opening Excel just follow these steps
To resolve the problem, delete cached versions of the control type libraries. 
To do this, search the hard disk for “.exd,” and then delete all occurrences. The .exd files are re-created automatically by using the new controls the next time that you use VBA.

After deleting all .exd files(there were only 2 in AppData folder) things were back to normal and BAM Excel Add-In worked fine.
