    Run-Time Error "13" (Word 2000 SR-1)

    When I start Word 2000, and this just started last week, I get a Run-Time Error "13", Type mismatch dialog. However, the continue and debug buttons are dimmed so I can't debug and figure out where this error is coming from. My only choices are End and Help. Is there some way I can figure out which template or macro is causing this problem other than checking each one one by one? (in other words, is there some way to get word to show me what it's loading when this error appears?).

    Thx.

    Hi Rich,

    Since you can't select Debug, I suspect that the macro is located in a global template or add-in.

    Go to Tools/Templates and Add-Ins and see if there are any global templates or add-ins listed. If so they are located your WordStartup folder. If more than one, move them one at a time until you determine which one is causing the problem. The location of the WordStartup folder can be found under
    Tools/Options/File Locations.

    Also, Word 2000 can have COM add-ins, those that are added in via the Registry rather than the WordStartup folder. To determine this, add the COM Add-In command to your toolbar.

    - Right-click any toolbar and select Customize
    - On the Commands tab, select the Tools category
    - Locate COM Add-Ins on the right
    - Drag/Drop to a location of your choice

    For more information on COM Add-Ins, see this article:

    Thanks for the ideas. I was afraid I was going to have to check them one by one, but I just did that, and figured out it's Wopr_ui.dot, part of the Wood's Office Power Pack I got with my Word 2000 book. I don't think I can edit this file, and wouldn't know what to do if I could. Do you know what this might be? Isn't there some WOPR support area? Maybe I'll ask there. Thx.

    -Rich.
