    Add-Ins (Again) (VBA/Word/2000 & 2003)

    I have a procedure AutoExec.Main in an Add-In template. This procedure runs a secondary procedure that is located in a second Add-In.

    On launching Word the the AutoExec.Main procedure cannot run the secondary procedure. However, after ending the AutoExec.Main procedure, subsequent attempts at running AutoExec.Main are successful.

    I believe the problem is that the Add-In containing the secondary procedure is not installed until after the AutoExec.Main procedure has finished.

    Can anyone advise me on how to control the order Add-Ins become installed during the launch process; or offer other guidance on this subject?

    T.I.A.
    Regards

    I think Normal.dot loads first, then the add-ins (global templates) in reverse alphabetic order of their names (from Z to A).
