    VBA Can't Find String Functions (e.g., lcase, Asc) (VBA for Word 2000)

    my VBA editor suddenly can't seem to find a bunch of string functions--it says it's missing the library or reference for such strinjg conversion functions as Asc, or Chr, or lcase, or ucase...

    any ideas as to what I might have done to my installation?

    Check under Tools, References in the VBA editor window, and see if any references are marked MISSING. If so remove them and ret to reset. You might see a reference to Microsoft Office 10 library as marked MISSING, if so uncheck it and just set a reference to whatever version you can find in the list (Office 9 probably).

    This may have arisen due to editing on a different version of Office.

    Thanks Andrew. That helped.

    I had references to some missing global templates (which I had temporarily removed). I restored the global templates, and now my string functions work correctly--although I must confess that I have no idea why other VBA code modules would affect VBA's ability to find its own string functions!
