    Word cannot fire event? WHY NOT???

    Hi y'all,
    I'm running word2000 on win98, and have been using a very neat little word macro to alter the outlook message class on new forms that i've devised in outlook. it's been working an absolute dream for the last year.

    today, i run the macro and get told "word cannot fire the event". i'm stumped. what do i do? there's nothing wrong with the macro because it works fine on other peoples pcs.

    i'm a bit dumb when it comes to macros. i've no idea why this won't work. can anyone help?

    Hi jo,

    It may be that you'll need to post the code here, to have a chance at getting a solution - not that that will guarantee anyone will have a solution <g> - but hard to diagnose the problem without seeing what the macro is doing.

    Jo, I remember getting that particular error message with Word about a year ago. However, it was nothing to do with a macro, cos I don't use them. But for the life of me cannot remember what the problem was associated with, nor what the solution was. Sorry I cannot help you with the problem but just wanted to let you know it may not necessarily be associated with a macro.
