Hi there

I also have some code which uses the Word.Application object to open a document in word, and I still get similar problems with the object not being created/instantiated when a user has certain versions of Word 2010 installed. Are there other ways of implementing Office automation, asre am I just mising something?

Many thanks

Waiman
