Our Systems people have started rolling out new PC's with Windows XP and Office 2007 installed. Unfortunately there a couple of us developers with various template projects developed under Word 2003 and Windows 2000. The code in the templates work with a number of 'boilerplate' documents that have the attached template set to the working template (2003 version).
We're getting a couple of run-time errors under Windows XP and Word 2007:
1) unable to open document - invalid network drive specified' using UNC file specs. The network drive is readily accessible using Windows explorer. If you go into debug and step through the documents.open command, the document opens.
2) Another project has Access 2003 launch a Word document, with code in the attached template that runs from the AutoOpen sub. With this project we get a run-time error 'unable to run the specified macro'. Yet we can open the template and see the macro. Everything is Public, etc. and worked fine in the last couple of versions of Word.
Word 2007 is set to run in compatibility mode.
Are there issues running 2003 templates and documents in 2007?
We still have to support 2003 on Windows 2000 since the corporate-wide roll-out isn't for some months yet.
