    Word97 VBA Run-time errors (Word 97)

    I have created several Word97 templates that allow me to insert preformmated autotext entries.

    I have used these templates on numerous machines and never encountered the problem I have now. I'm on a Windows 2000 machine, and when I try to create a new doc, using the custom template, I get a run-time 5981 error "Cannot open macro storage" message. When I debug the error, VBA highlights the following line of code:

    ActiveDocument.AttachedTemplate.AutoTextEntries("I nsertPlainTextPage").Insert _ Where:=Selection.Range, RichText:=True

    I created in the template in Word97, and am trying to run on a different machine, using Word97. Could this be a virus checker issue?

    On this machine, does the error occur if you try to run any macro, or only this macro?

    When it's a general problem, it can be due to the user not having write access to temporary directories and/or registry keys which Word/VBA need to use. For more info, see:



    If the problem is occurring only on this particular line of code, that's hard to figure. Is there anything special in that autotext? (sounds like there isn't given its name<g>)
