Using Outlook 2007 and Win XP.




Yesterday I invoked a VBA procedure (it empties all of my Deleted Items Folders), and for some reason Outlook crashed. I have been using this procedure for several years, so I know that it was stable.




Now when I open Outlook, I get the Enable/Disable Macros dialog as usual, but when I click on either Enable or Disable I now get another dialog saying File Not Found.




Opening the VBE, there is nothing in the Explorer window.




I have tried the Office Diagnostics, rebooting, etc with no luck. The .OTM file that has the code is still where it always has been. I have no way of knowing if it has been corrupted and is the source of the problem.




Any suggestions?




Thanks,




David

I hope you have a backup of the VBA... for whatever reason, the VBA module was corrupt so outlook replaced it with a fresh new file. It's hard to say if the crash corrupted it or something else - like a virus scan - was responsible.

It turned out to be a corrupt .OTM file as you suggested. Thankfully I had a copy of MOST of the VBA and will only have to recreate a small part that I had added recently.




However, the corrupt .OTM file was preventing Outlook from creating a new one. As a result, I moved the corrupt one out of the Outlook folder it was in and Outlook then could create a new ThisOutlookSession. I was then able to import the saved VBA and save a new .OTM file.




Thanks for teh reply!
