    VB runtime error 5 at startup (XP )

    Greetings from rainy Paris.

    I have a problem with Word XP. Whenever I start the program, I get an error: "Micorsoft VB: Run-time error '5': invalid procedure call or argument". I assume this comes from a macro that executes automatically whenvever Word starts. But I cannot find which macro it is or how to get rid of it. Questions:

    1) Do you know how to determine the name of the macro that is running and where it is located (in which .dot file)?
    2) Do you know how I can get rid of that macro?

    Thanks,
    Ben Phister

    Mind if I point you to a long post so I don't have to write it all out again? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    See <IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3timages/starpost.gif> Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (Word 97/2000)

    Despite the title, it works for Word XP, too.
