hi all

I have a vb6 program which integrates with MS Outlook and was working fine

until the client upgraded their PC's - the OS stayed at XP Pro but Office was

upgraded from 2003 to 2007.

The app is now throwing a runtime error 5 "invalid procedure call or

argument". This is difficult for me to debug as I my dev machine is W2K so I

cannot install Office 2007 on it. But as far as I can tell the error is

occurring when the code gets to the line myExplorer.Display - this is in

response to the user double clicking a calendar item in Outlook. Just

wondering is the Explorer.Display function not supported in 2007?

I'd add line numbers to the code and use a proper error handler, so you

don't need just to guess where the error occurs.

on error goto err_handler

10 some

20 code

exit sub

err_handler:

msgbox "an error was raised at line " & erl

Best regards
