Scripting Excel 2011 problem

I have a script that uses an array of file references and it works in 2004 and 2008. It doesn’t work in 2008.
When I tell it to autofilter,

tell range "A1" of active sheet of currentWorkbook
	autofilter range field 26 criteria1 providerKey with visible drop down
end tell

it complains that the tell receiver doesn’t understand the message. It even spells out the receiver which is the range “A1” of the active sheet of the workbook showing just what i expect to see there.

Despite this I suspected it had lost the reference to currentWorkbook. So I rebuilt the file references, as aliases, and a small test script works. When I add a few dialogs rather than hardcoding parameters it fails. THe dialogs are very simple.

Anyone had this sort of issue?
