    Stack space (W2K O2K - Word)

    How can a stack space be local to the individual PC???

    I got an .dot file with a lot of VBA code.
    I did a simultaneous test on to PC's; one laptop - one ordinary.

    At the last "insert autotext" the laptop completes as intended without problems, whereas the other fails with the error message "Out of stack space".
    (I have checked and verified that all files participating in the operation are identical...)
    When I read the MS documentation stack space is fixed for the Word app.

    - how come that I get different results on different PC's, if stack space is fixed ??

    Maybe both PC's have different macros in Normal.dot?

    A slight modification to my mail laptop is W2K - other is NT4.0

    Both have had normal.dot deleted - nothing is stored there

    "stack space" refers to resource heaps used by the OS.

    Even with Identical Office installations and .dot files, you are still operating in a different OS environment withall sorts of different apps interacting.

    How much memory does each system have?

    What about the paging file?
    Try http://www.standards.com/ThisAndThat/PageF...ageMonitor.html to check page file use.

    I don't think I can recall an "out of stack space error" with VBA.

    I'd first try:

    1. If running Norton Auntie Virus, make sure NAV's AutoProtect is enabled AND disable the NAV Office plug-in.

    2. See what's running in Word's start up directory. Uninstall critters not needed.
