    Activex component can't create object (2000)

    I have a user who gets an error message that says "Activex can't create object" when she opens Word.

    I thought that it was a permissions thing, because I don't get the message when I log in as administrator. But she is an admin on her local machine.

    I Googled and searched MS KB but all the references that I can find refer to Access or VB programming none for Office 2000 or specifically for Word.

    Her installation of Office is up to date with updates.

    I can tell that I am missing something, but don't know what

    Perhaps an add-in (global template) is causing problems. Try Phil Rabichow's <!post=Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word,197827>Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word<!/post>.

    There are many, many potential causes for this. Example from my past and how to code around it: machines that had DAO 3.5 from Office 97 vs. DAO 3.6 from Office 2000, see http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showthread...b&Number=290295.
